The Splitting of Spectral Lines at Scattering of Light by Liquids

Abstract

As was pointed out in my previous communication (see NATURE, Aug. 9, p. 201), when light is scattered by liquids or crystals, there can be observed a splitting of spectral lines which may be ascribed to the influence of elastic heat waves. In the case of strongly scattering liquids, the change of the frequency is given by the following equation:
