An experimental method is designed to test the Dispersive Extinction Theory (DET). It has been shown that the cosmic redshift is dependent not only on the distance, but also on the wavelength and the line width. Such dependence is fundamentally different from what was predicted by the Big Bang Theory (BBT) and can be used to test DET experimentally. It has also been shown that a new S-function, instead of the redshift, is solely dependent on distance and independent of wavelength and line width. The issue of line identification for quasars is also discussed according to DET.
