The kinetics of conduction electrons interacting with the field of sound waves in a constant magnetic field is studied. Balance macroscopic equations for macroscopic spin components are derived to describe the nonlinear acoustic resonance regime. It is shown that this interaction may give rise to a spin current.

PACS: 73.23.–b Electronic transport in mesoscopic systems.

Key words: spin-orbit interaction, acoustic resonance, spin current.
