Double Refraction n Glass

Agreed, there is in fact a double refraction.

ok, thanks, I just wanted to be sure. The light from the inner of the glass is scattered to my understanding, therefore it can be seen. Nevertheless it has to pass through the surface again, with a possible additional requency shift.

Gareth gave an argument against fluorescence which I distributed this morning, he mentioned that in order for fluorescence to occur, absorption of a photon must take place. This photon is reemitted at lower frequencies because the medium also emits heat. Gareth argued that in his numerous experiments with Trevor, absorption does not occur. His experiments in glass, a non absorbing medium, also show very large frequency shifts in the absence of fluorescence. I think that these experiments in glass also answer the second question below, because colour changes are observed directly in the glass.

Subj: Questions concerning experiments

When we will try to publish these phonomenal experimental results in a
journal like Nature, we should be aware that these effects will be
ascribed to fluorescence. Are we absolutely sure that observing speckles
is sufficient to exclude fluorescence effects? I am not a specialist in
this field. Perhaps it would be good to do the same experiment with a
known fluorescing material and to prove that there are no speckles for

Another point: The frequency shifts are not observed within the material
directly (there is no sensor) but after the beam has been refracted a
second time. What are the consequences of this? The true frequency shift
at one surface can certainly not be observed in this way.
