Electric dipole moment and spin supercurrent in superfluid3He

  • V. P. Mineev
  • G. E. Volovik


The SU(2) gauge invariant theory of the relativistic interaction of the electrically neutral superfluid3He with electric and magnetic fields is formulated. The spin supercurrent response on the electric field is calculated for this interaction. The comparison with the nonrelativistic flexoelectric effect, arising due to the distortion of the atomic shell by the gradients of the superfluid order parameter, is made.
