Apparently I'm far away from the reputation required to do this.

(Or is there a reason not to do this? Granted one can simply search the site for "Rayleigh," but I assume the tags are there so anyone concentrating on it can subscribe/follow.)

You cannot create your own tags, even on your own questions, until your reputation is >300 (see privileges: create tags). Since it is your own question, and seems relevant, I edited your post to create the tag for you. Be aware that, as noted on the help center page:

new tags will be automatically culled and removed from the system if they are not used by at least 1 other question in a 6 month period
