Coherent Rayleigh-Brillouin scattering. Academic Article uri icon


  • Coherent Rayleigh-Brillouin scattering in gases has been studied experimentally for the first time in the kinetic regime and shown to give line shapes that differ significantly from the spontaneous Rayleigh-Brillouin scattering. A kinetic model was developed to obtain an analytic solution of the line shape for monatomic gases, and good agreement with the experimental data was achieved.
