Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) of sulfur-II (S-II) phase was investigated by laser decomposition of liquid carbon disulfide. As a matter of fact, above a threshold of the laser intensity, it is suggested that a strong shock wave is generated in the liquid carbon disulfide, which is decomposed owing to the induced high dynamic pressure and temperature. One bending mode frequency at and one symmetric stretching mode A1 frequency at of S-II phase were observed. The SRS spectra indicated that S-II structure is formed by laser decomposition, as the strong shock wave generates the stable pressure-temperature range of S-II phase. The dynamic high-pressure and static-electric field generated by laser-induced breakdown results in the softening A1 mode becoming more hardened.
