Abstract

We present a method for obtaining coherent Rayleigh–Brillouin scattering (CRBS) spectra on timescales of hundreds of nanoseconds using rapidly chirped, pulsed, optical lattices. This enables us to transfer the spectral profile to a temporal profile which can be easily recorded on a single shot of an oscilloscope. These spectra are demonstrated to have sufficient signal-to-noise ratio to study CRBS models over a wide range of gas densities.
