Abstract
Room-temperature bromine is a liquid with index of refraction of the order of 1.66. It is composed of homonuclear diatomic molecules, possessing only a single vibrational normal mode for which infrared transitions are approximately dipole forbidden. Hence, it offers the prospect for very low absorption in the region from 1pm to 30μm. This would be particularly attractive for broadly tunable sources, such as free-electron lasers.
