Abstract

High-resolution Brillouin spectra were recorded for light scattered at small angles from liquid CS2. The use of a single-mode He–Ne laser, locked in frequency to a Fabry–Perot interferometer, permitted measurements of line widths of the order of 10 MHz for frequencies in the range 300–1000 MHz. These measurements extend previous Brillouin line-width measurements at higher frequencies into the region where relaxation effects are dominant and connect the optical measurements with lower-frequency acoustical data.
