I found some confusing information regarding the quantizaton: according to the work of Tifft and others the effect appears to apply generally, but according to Burbidge and Napier (2000)( ) the effect is only observed for quasars (and only a particular type of quasars at that) but not for normal galaxies (see the third paragraph in the introduction of the paper). This would obviously contradict Tifft's earlier observation

Bell (and Comeau), in their papers on arxiv found a fundamental periodicity in z 0.062 (and its multiple 0.62). This multiplicity is found applying a CREIL effect to the propagation of a far UV continuous spectrum in neutral atomic hydrogen, so that it seems to me that their result is general.

Burbidge found a multiplicity in log(1+z). It is an approximation of the general formula, which works only in a short domain of redshifts (high redshifts).

I am generally very sceptical about any effects that are not clearly obvious from the data but are only inferred by means of some statistical procedure, as it seems to be the case for the 'quantized redshift'.

The quantification of the redshifts is only a part of the problem of the frequency shifts. Doppler like frequency shifts result from thermodynamically allowed exchanges of energy between beams refracted by a gas containing neutral atomic hydrogen in states 2S or (and) 2P (named H*).

If a continuous far UV spectrum light propagates in atomic hydrogen (15000K hydrogen), the Lyman absorptions produce alternatively redshifts and strong absorptions, generating a spectrum with the fundamental relative frequency shift period z=0.062. Some multiples are interesting, in particular 0.62. It is pure, standard spectroscopy named CREIL effect.

This generation of frequency shifts explains, without strange hypothesis a lot of observations:

- blueshift of the radio from the Pioneer 10 and 11 probes (H* generated by the cooling of the wind beyond 5-10 AU allows transfers of energy from the sun light).

- part of the anisotropy of the CMB bound to the ecliptic (same explanation, the solar wind produced by the corona being bound to the ecliptic)

- complete spectrum of the quasars

- In Arp's alignments, the galaxy is less redshifted because H* is mainly produced by the UV of the quasars, so that the path through H* is larger from them.

and a lot of other axamples!

If you dislike spectroscopy, you can, at least observe that anomalous frequency shifts appear where the beams cross a gas containing H*.
