We describe an opto-mechanical effect that introduces an additional phase into a coherent light field. This effect is accomplished via the motion of a cavity which contains an ultradispersive medium. We have theoretically shown that this change of the phase, due to the enhanced Fizeau effect, can be used to measure displacements as small as . This technique can be used to detect the Coriolis Force.
