Paper Abstract

The multiple scattering theory which produces Doppler-like wavelength shift,even, when the source and the intervening medium are at rest with respect to the observer has been recently verified in laboratory experiments. In the experiments, light from Hg lines propagating through anisotropic plasma medium has been shown to produce redshift as well as broadening. These results may signify important developments in statistical optics as well as in observational cosmology.
