Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Applying a sufficiently strong magnetic field perpendicular to a ferrofluid interface causes fluid peaks to develop, known as the Cowley–Rosensweig perpendicular magnetic field peaking instability.4 Surface tension can be calculated from the given parameters in the schematic.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Images of the peaking instability for all four tested ferrofluid configurations at magnetic fields above the critical values for incipience of instability.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Measured Langevin magnetization curves for the three tested ferrofluids compared to the theoretical Langevin curve of Eq. (2). The slight deviations between theory and measurements is due to the distribution of particle sizes listed in Table III.
