Abstract

Liquid sulfur was studied by Brillouin scattering from the melting point up to 200°C. Polarized spectra show no evidence of the λ transition. The velocity of sound extracted from the Brillouin spectra agrees with previous ultrasonic measurements. The width of the central line in the depolarized spectra exhibits a maximum near the λ transition temperature; this is in qualitative agreement with the known maximum in viscosity. © 1996 American Chemical Society.
