Photon and atom interaction is considered as resonance between angular momentum and photon's magnetic field. With the similar approach in classical oscillator, the same mathematical method is used to model the process of photon absorption and emission. In addition, Michelson-Morley experiment, Fizeau experiment and Sagnac effect has implications for properties of wave propagation in moving medium. It is proposed for interferometric methods that capable of either measuring angular velocity or measuring velocity.
