Magnetic Cracked Pot

The magnetic fields of a cracked pot. Note - the blue ring in the center is from having two different magnets; the bottom volume is like a large ring magnet and the top is like a cylinder magnet. The interaction between the two, top and bottom, produces the blue ring eddy of flux. Also a capacitor with horizontal plates has the same field values as a vertical aligned magnet. In other words, you could design a capacitor that has the same field as the object in the video, but it would be...

Magnetic Warp (Pretty Pictures)

Magnetic Warp (Pretty Pictures)This investigation describes and demonstrates a novel technique for the visualization of magnetic fields. Two ferrofluid Hele-Shaw cells have been constructed to facilitate the imaging of magnetic field lines. We deduce that magnetically induced photonic band gap arrays similar to electrostatic liquid crystal operation are responsible for the photographed images and seek to mathematically prove the images are of dipole nature. This is the Pretty Pictures...
