Abstract
A general, systematic formalism is presented for obtaining the transit time of a light signal propagation in an arbitrarily moving dielectric medium along a given trajectory. The analysis is carried on an arbitrary reference system, not necessarily the rest frame of the medium. The explicit form of the transit time can be used to analyze the potentialities of various interferometric devices. In particular, a linear acceleration sensing device is investigated.
