Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering in Benzene and Nitromethane Shock-Compressed to 11 GPA
The shock-compression induced frequency shifts of the ring-stretching mode of liquid benzene and the CN-stretching mode of liquid nitromethane have been measured using coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS). Shock pressures up to 11 GPa were achieved using a two-stage light gas gun. The frequency shifted CARS signals were generated using single-pulse Nd:YAG and broadband dye lasers. Where possible, the results of the dynamic experiments were compared to other dynamic high pressure experiments.
