Paper Abstract

It has been observed the effect of the addition of small concentrations of an absorbing dye (approximately 10 ppm of Coumarin 337) on the super-broadening process of CS2 stimulated scattering lines in a capillary fiber. This effect is attributed to the selective absorption of dye molecules, which creates an anisotropic distribution of these molecules in the excited- and ground states, which possess different static dipole moments. This asymmetry affects the orientation of the CS2 molecules through the modification of the local field, as measured by changing the spectral distribution of stimulated scattering and the optical induced birefringence of the liquid.
