Description

We describe a new method to use Baryon Acoustic Oscillations to derive a constraint on the possible variation of the speed of light. The method relies on the fact that there is a simple relation between the angular diameter distance maximum and the Hubble function evaluated at the same maximum-condition redshift, which includes speed of light c. We evaluate if current or future missions can be sensitive enough to detect any variation of c.
