Abstract
We present the use of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) in conjunctiOn with a two-stage light-gas gun to obtain vibrational spectra of shock-compressed liquid N2, 02, CO. and their mixtures. The experimental spectra are compared to spectra calculated using a semiclassical model for CARS intensities to obtain vibrational frequencies, peak Raman susceptibilities, and linewidths. The derived spectroscopic parameters suggest thermal equilibrium of the vibrational populations is established in less than a few nanoseconds after shock passage. Vibrational temperatures obtained are compared to those derived from equation-of-state calculations. Shifts in the vibrational frequencies reflect the influence of increased density and temperature on the intramolecular motion.
