High-Speed Ferrofluid

Featured Video Play Icon

High-speed video captures the behavior of a ferrofluid trapped between two magnets. Ferrofluids contain tiny ferromagnetic particles suspended in a carrier fluid like oil or water. The distinctive peaks and valleys of a ferrofluid subject to a strong magnetic field is due to the normal-field instability and is a result of the fluid minimizing its magnetic energy.
