Abstract

Brillouin-scattering efficiencies of liquids were determined by use of a sample cell free from refractive-index corrections and by use of Rayleigh scattering from Ludox solution as an intensity reference. The scattering efficiencies for carbon disulfide, toluene, benzene, and carbon tetrachloride were determined at 4880 Å. for 90° scattering to be 17.9 ± 1.2, 12.7 ± 1.0, 10.2 ± 0.7, and 9.72 ± 0.78, respectively (in units of 10−6 cm−1 sr−1).
