Frequency-dependent viscosity of xenon near the critical point.

Abstract

We used a novel, overdamped oscillator aboard the Space Shuttle to measure the viscosity eta of xenon near its critical density rho(c) and temperature Tc. In microgravity, useful data were obtained within 0.1 mK of Tc, corresponding to a reduced temperature t=(T-Tc)/Tc=3 x 10(-7). Because they avoid the detrimental effects of gravity at temperatures two… (More)
