Corrimiento al Rojo by Iñaki Azcona on Prezi
In Einstein’s general theory of relativitythe gravitational redshift is the phenomenon that clocks in a gravitational field tick slower when observed by a distant gravitadional. More specifically the term refers to the shift of wavelength of a photon to longer wavelength the red side in an optical spectrum when observed from a point in a lower gravitational field. In the latter case the ‘clock’ is the frequency of the photon and a lower frequency is the same as a longer “redder” wavelength.
The gravitational redshift is a simple consequence of Einstein’s equivalence principle “all bodies fall with the same acceleration, independent of their composition” and was found by Einstein eight years before the full theory of relativity.
Observing the gravitational redshift in the solar system is one of the classical tests of general relativity.
Gravitational redshifts are an important effect in satellite-based navigation systems such as GPS. If the effects of general relativity were not taken into account, such systems would not work at all.
Einstein’s theory of general relativity incorporates the equivalence principlewhich can be stated in various different ways.
One such statement is that gravitational effects are locally undetectable for a free-falling observer.

Therefore, in a laboratory experiment at the surface of the earth, all gravitational effects should be equivalent to the effects that would have been observed if the laboratory had been accelerating through outer space at g. One consequence is a gravitational Doppler effect. If a light pulse is emitted at the floor of the laboratory, then a free-falling observer says that by the time it reaches the ceiling, the ceiling has accelerated away from it, and therefore when observed by a detector fixed to the ceiling, it will be observed to have been Doppler shifted toward the red end of the spectrum.
This shift, which the free-falling observer considers to be a kinematical Doppler shift, is thought of by the laboratory observer as a gravitational redshift. Such an effect was verified in the Pound—Rebka experiment. In a case such as this, where the gravitational field is uniform, the change in wavelength is given by. Since this prediction arises directly from the equivalence principle, it does not require any of the mathematical apparatus of general relativity, and its verification does not specifically support general relativity over any other theory that incorporates the equivalence principle.
When the field is not uniform, the simplest and most useful case to consider is that of a spherically symmetric field.

The result is that frequencies and wavelengths are shifted according to the ratio. For an object compact enough to have an event horizonthe gravitcional is not defined for photons emitted inside the Schwarzschild radius, both because signals cannot escape from inside the horizon and because an object such as the emitter cannot be stationary inside the horizon, as was assumed above.
When the photon is emitted at a distance equal to the Schwarzschild radius, the redshift will be infinitely large, and it will not escape to any finite distance from the Schwarzschild sphere.
When the photon is emitted at an infinitely large distance, there is no redshift. In the Newtonian limit, gravitaciobal. A number of experimenters initially claimed to have identified the effect using astronomical measurements, and the effect was considered to have been finally identified in the spectral lines of the star Sirius B by W.
The redshift of Sirius B was finally measured by Greenstein et al. The effect is now considered to have been definitively verified by the experiments of PoundRebka and Snider between and The Pound—Rebka experiment of measured the gravitational redshift in spectral lines using a terrestrial rooj Fe gamma source over a vertical height of It tested the gravitational redshift to 0.
Later tests can be done with the Global Positioning System GPSwhich must account for the gravitational redshift in its timing system, and physicists have analyzed timing data from the GPS to confirm other tests.
When the first satellite was launched, it showed the predicted shift of 38 microseconds per day. This rate of the discrepancy is sufficient to substantially impair the function of GPS within hours if not accounted for. An excellent account of the role played by general relativity in the design of GPS can be found in Ashby .
Braulta graduate student of Robert Dicke at Princeton Universitymeasured the gravitational redshift of the sun using optical methods in In the group of Radek Wojtak of the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen collected data from galaxy clusters and found that the light coming from the cluster centers tended to be red-shifted compared to the cluster edges, confirming the energy loss due to gravity.
Other precision tests of general relativity,  not discussed here, are the Gravity Probe A satellite, launched inwhich showed gravity and velocity affect the ability to synchronize the rates of clocks orbiting a central mass; the Hafele—Keating experimentwhich used atomic clocks in circumnavigating aircraft to test general relativity and special relativity together;   and the forthcoming Satellite Test of the Equivalence Principle.
The gravitational weakening of light from high-gravity stars was predicted by John Michell in and Pierre-Simon Laplace inusing Isaac Newton ‘s concept of light corpuscles see: The effect of gravity on light was then explored by Johann Georg von Soldnerwho calculated the amount of deflection of a light ray by the sun, arriving at the Newtonian answer which is half the value predicted by general relativity.
All of this early work assumed that light could slow down and fall, which was inconsistent with the modern understanding of light waves. Once it became accepted that light was an electromagnetic wave, it was clear that the frequency of light should not change from place to place, since waves from a source with a fixed frequency keep the same frequency everywhere. One way around this conclusion would be if time itself were altered—if clocks at different points had different rates.
This was precisely Einstein’s conclusion in He considered an accelerating box, and noted that according to the special theory of relativitythe clock rate at the bottom of the box was slower than the clock rate at the top. Nowadays, this can be easily shown in accelerated coordinates. The metric tensor in units where the speed of light is one is:. So at a fixed value of g, the fractional rate of change of the clock-rate, the percentage change in the ticking at the top of an accelerating box vs at the bottom, is:.
The rate is faster at larger values of R, away from the apparent direction of acceleration. Using the equivalence principle, Einstein concluded that the same thing holds in any gravitational field, that the rate of clocks R at different heights was altered according to the gravitational field g. When g is slowly varying, it gives the fractional rate of change of the ticking rate.
If the ticking rate is everywhere almost this same, the fractional rate of change is the same as the absolute rate of change, so that:. Since the rate of clocks and the gravitational potential have the same derivative, they are the same up to a constant. The constant is chosen to make the clock rate at infinity equal to 1. Since the gravitational potential is zero at infinity:.
This expression is correct in the full theory of general relativity, to lowest order in the gravitational field, and ignoring the variation of the space-space and space-time components of the metric tensor, which only affect fast moving objects. Using this approximation, Einstein reproduced the incorrect Newtonian value for the deflection of light in But since a light beam is a fast moving object, the space-space components contribute too.
After constructing the full theory of general relativity inEinstein solved for the space-space components in a post-Newtonian approximation and calculated the correct amount of light deflection — double the Newtonian value. Einstein’s prediction was confirmed by many experiments, starting with Arthur Eddington ‘s solar eclipse expedition.
To calculate the changes in frequency in a nearly static gravitational field, only the time component of the metric tensor is important, and the lowest order approximation is accurate enough for ordinary stars and planets, which are much bigger than their Schwarzschild radius.
