Abstract

Acoustic spin has been recently explored for many applications. In particular, transverse acoustic spin was demonstrated for inhomogeneous acoustic fields. In this Letter, we show the emergence of acoustic spin and torque in rotating acoustic objects of the same physical properties as the surrounding, to single out the effects purely due to rotation. The spinning of a cylindrical column of air or water in the same medium possesses intrinsic spin angular momentum, and we study the torque and force it experiences in evanescent acoustic fields. The resulting discontinuity can thus scatter sound in unusual ways, including a negative radiation force, although it has no imaginary part in its parameters.
