Measurement of polarization dependence of nonlinear susceptibility responsible for Rayleigh-wing and Brillouin scattering

Abstract

By using a simple optical geometry based on backward light scattering and employing a Sandercock-type tandem Fabry–Perot interferometer, we measure both the linear and the circular polarization dependences of Rayleigh-wing and Brillouin scattering in a sample of liquid-crystal 4-n-pentyl-4-cyanobiphenyl. Observed polarization dependences are consistent with the third-order nonlinear susceptibilities, taking into account the traceless symmetric scattering tensor for Rayleigh-wing scattering and the isotropic scattering tensor for Brillouin scattering.
