Transport Properties of Superfluid Dipolar Fermi Gas at Low Temperatures


Transport coefficients of superfluid dipolar Fermi gas are calculated by using the Boltzmann equation approach. The interaction between Bogoliubov-Bogoliubov quasiparticles in the collision integral is considered in binary process. The shear viscosities nxz = nyy↑,nxy; nxz ≈ nyz; and nu are proportional to T-6; T-8; and T-10 , respectively. Also, we have found the elements of the diffusive thermal conductivities Kxx= Kyy with temperature dependency T-5 and Ku which is proportional to T-7 and other components which are zero.
