Abstract

The quantized redshifts observed from galaxies in the local supercluster have recently been shown to be well described by stimulated Stokes Raman processes in intergalactic Rydberg matter (RM). The size of the quanta corresponds to transitions in the planar clusters forming the RM, of the order of 6 x 10(-6) cm(-1). A stimulated Stokes Raman process gives redshifts that are independent of the wavelength of the radiation, and it allows the radiation to proceed without deflection, in agreement with observation. Such redshifts must also be additive during the passage through space. Rydberg matter is common in space and explains the observed Faraday rotation in intergalactic space and the spectroscopic signatures called unidentified infrared bands (UIBs) and diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs). Rydberg matter was also recently proposed to be baryonic dark matter. Experiments now show directly that IR light is redshifted by a Stokes stimulated Raman process in cold RM. Shifts of 0.02 cm(-1) are regularly observed. It is shown by detailed calculations based on the experimental results that the redshifts due to Stokes scattering are of at least the same magnitude as observations. © 2005 Pleiades Publishing, Inc.
