Abstract

"Brillouin light scattering spectra from transverse and longitudinal acoustic waves in liquid and supercooled. 3-methylpentane have been collected from room temperature down to 80 K, just above. the glass transition.

We found evidence of a shear relaxation with a characteristic time of 100 s at the glass. transition which only partly accounts for the relaxation observed in the propagation and attenuation. of the longitudinal modes. The inclusion of a relaxing bulk viscosity contribution with a relaxation. time of the order of 102 ns at the glass transition is found to adequately reproduce the experimental. data including transient grating data at a much lower frequency.
