    This simulator applies to our standing wave interferometer experiment, interferometer 3. The path C4 is parallel to the expected aether wind, which in this case is shown on the E-W axis. The interferometer is rotated 180 degrees in the simulation to anti-parallel to the wind. A fringe shift is expected through the standing wave sensor (SWD) due to the path effect since the standing wave moves its position with respect to the SWD, due to a phase shift between the two counter-propagating waves. This fringe shift is canceled by the change in the clock frequency of the laser as it rotates, which pushes the position of the standing wave back through the SWD in the opposite direction. The values in green are adjustable. See the experimental write-up for more details. Note: Clock Effect only applies to one way paths - all two way paths cancel out.
