I've been trying to find out what the definition of negative pressure in the context of General Relativity. There are some information on negative pressure and I found this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The starter of that thread also doesn't know what the physical meaning of negative pressure.

According to General Relativity, positive mass, positive energy, and negative pressure leads to repulsive gravity.

I read somewhere that repulsive gravity is related to the negative pressure that exists on the cosmological scale or inside spherical objects such as planets.

I guess maybe I should explain why I want to know the definition of negative pressure. There's a researcher who's trying to create a device that can spin electrons in a crystal lattice. Since spinning an object that possesses gravitational mass creates a gravito-magnetism (a second gravitational field so to speak), spinning electrons would also create a minuscule gravitational field as well. If you spin these astronomically-large number of electrons in a crystal lattice in the same direction at the same frequency, a coherent gravitational field will emerge. It would seem that the gravitational field is being amplified around the crystal lattice. I think some of you might be already familiar with this technology that is being developed.

I was wondering if it's possible to amplify the negative pressure at a given point so to create an amplified coherent gravitational repulsive field. Technology that can produce this effect would have an amazing effect on space exploration development.
