Abstract

Following Gillis, Shinder, and Moldover [Phys. Rev. E 70, 021201 (2004)], we deduce the thermophysical properties of near-critical xenon from measurements of the frequencies and half-widths of the acoustic resonances of xenon maintained at its critical density in centimeter-sized cavities. In the reduced temperature range 10-3
