Low-Frequency Raman Spectra of Liquids

  • L. A. Blatz


Since 1964 it has been possible to observe,1,2 clearly, low-frequency (less than 100 to 150 cm− 1) Raman lines from liquids. Previous observations3–5 of this low-frequency Raman spectral region from liquids were, in general, subject to disagreements, both theoretical and experimental.4,5
