1. In Current Science, redshift is the displacement of spectral lines, resonance peaks, etc., of photons, towards longer wavelengths or the red end of the spectrum, implying (if this is a Doppler effect) that a celestial object exhibiting this is receding; the extent of this.
2. In Neu Theory, redshift is the displacement of spectral lines, resonance peaks, etc., of photons, towards longer wavelengths or the red end of the spectrum. There are four physical causes for this effect:
- Spinfield hollow effects – the photon energy is reduced as it departs the spinfield of the light emitting object. This is the “gravitational” redshift.
- Proper motion – the distance between the photon emitting source and the photon absorbing object is increasing. This is the “Doppler” redshift.
- Zome pressure – the photon “bubble” uniformly increases in size during transport due to the pressure of Zome g-rise acting from within. This is the “Hubble” redshift based on the distance of travel. If you double the distance the redshift also doubles.
- Zome acceleration – in addition to the Hubble redshift the photon bubble increases in size at an accelerating rate based on its “age”. This is the “Dark Energy” redshift – a small compounding depreciation of photon energy based on the accumulated time of travel. If you double the time of travel this redshift is quadrupled, however as the uniform universal acceleration constant a is so small to begin with it takes a long time (several billion years of travel) before the energy loss begins to be significantly noticeable above the Hubble redshift. This redshift measures the rate of acceleration of the current speed of light.
