Effects of Temperature on the UV-Visible Spectrum of Dynamically Compressed CS2
The transmission spectrum of liquid CS2 contained in a penny-shaped cavity approximately 150 µm thick has been measured in the range 320 to 700 nm. The samples were contained between sapphire plates and compressed in uniaxial strain induced by plane impact of a third sapphire plate on the front plate of the cell. The shock generated by the sapphire impact produced a series of reverberating shocks in the CS2 which caused it to ring up to the impact pressure of the two sapphire plates.1 Impact pressure ranged from 54 to 130 kilobars. The ringing-up process is shown in the x-t plane in Fig. 1 where the impact shock produces state 1 shown in the lower left.
