Abstract

A binary mixture subject to a large temperature gradient is studied. Solutions of the evolution equations for the time-dependent fluctuation correlations are obtained using mode-coupling theory subject to the assumption that the mixture is not close to a critical point. From these results predictions for the light-scattering spectrum at the Rayleigh and Brillouin lines are made. The temperature gradient is shown to cause a large enhancement of the scattering amplitude at the Rayleigh line, whereas the effect at the Brillouin line is found to be small.
