Ummm, question. If I send out an ultraviolet ray, can we change it to an infrared ray in flight? Light is a collection of rays of all wavelengths, some absorbed upon contact, some reflected, but besides the source changing frequencies (vibration rate) we assume what we receive is the same as what was sent. An X-ray produced in the lab depends on the voltage and material of the anode. So the material absorbing and re-emitting the ummm photon never enters into the equation? An ultraviolet ray always stays an ultraviolet ray, even when the voltage and material of the absorbing and re-emitting material may be different? You sure you are measuring what started out? We sure have a lot of assumptions in there.

Interference patterns occur because there is not one ray of a specific frequency, but millions of all frequencies, even in what is called a single photon pulse. All individual wavelengths are present, some simply amplified by the source. Some reflected at tangents, some absorbed, and spectral lines appear. But what you receive is not necessarily what you sent. We call it random interference or random noise, but in reality it is change of the original signal with each absorption and re-emittance event.

Interference patterns occur on flat detectors (not coned shaped ones) because some are reflected, hit the pinhole material and reflect back to the detector. The cone shape of the eye tends to reflect all rays to the back of the eye and no such patterns occur. Two different detectors, two different results. [link to www.thunderbolts.info]

i noticed ears go back on that question 1rof1

I doubt that you could "change it to an infrared ray in flight." A rapidly receding detector would detect an infrared spectrum from a beam or ray of light that has an ultraviolet spectrum when detected by a detector at rest with the source, that source being you, in the above scenario.

How would you go about trying to change the frequency of a beam of light "in flight?" Why would you want to?

If the frequency can't be changed in flight, then redshift occurs how? [link to www.thunderbolts.info]
