Abstract:

Liquid carbon disulfide has its first electronic transition centered at 3200A. Shock-compression of CS2 up to about 80 kilobars has been shown to shift the red edge of this absorption band more than 1600 A towards longer wavelengths. In this work the conditions of temperature and pressure behind the shock wave are controlled to allow their separate effects on the CS2 spectrum to be determined. The shift of the band edge appears to be a function only of temperature and pressure. Originator supplied keywords include Shock waves Carbon disulfide Electronic spectrum Heated cell Cooled cell.
