Pressure diffusion and sound absorption in spin-polarized quantum systems

  • K. D. Ivanova

Pressure diffusion and related phenomena are studied in the cases of Fermi liquids and dilute gases with arbitary degree of quantum degeneracy. An equation is derived expressing the (spin) pressure diffusion ratio through partial viscosities of (spin) components of systems. The exact values of corresponding transport coefficients are given for the cases of spin-polarized Boltzmann or degenerate quantum gases and spin-polarized Fermi liquids. The influence of surface slip effects on diffusion properties of spin-polarized quantum systems is discussed. The results may be used for gaseous and liquid3He,3He ↑ -4He solutions, gases H ↑ and D ↑, and other spin-polarized or binary quantum systems.
