Freezing-In of Ultrasonic Standing Waves in Diffusion Systems by the Concentration Zone Effect
If a thermally generated dilatation is superimposed upon a path having a monotonic concentration gradient, the latter changes into a periodic system of zones with a higher concentration and density. This system of zones remains stable for some time. The present paper examines this “concentration zone effect” as applied to ultrasonic waves in liquids. In a continuous progressive wave it takes a longer time, until the thermal dilatation produces an effect independent of the wave length. In a stationary wave, which is produced in a path with monotonic concentration gradient, however, it is possible to produce the “concentration zone effect” in each half-wave length. As a consequence the striation produced by the ultrasonic wave is frozen-in, and continues for a longer spell of time after the sound source is switched off. This phenomenon of freezing-in of stationary ultrasonic waves in liquid diffusion systems can be realized in any system of miscible and soluble substances.
