Dynamics of a Dielectric Microdrop Suspended in a Magnetic Fluid in Electric and Magnetic Fields
The dynamics of a microdrop of dielectric liquid suspended in a magnetic fluid under the action of electric and magnetic fields is studied experimentally. With increasing electric field, the deformation of droplets into oblate spheroid, toroid and curved toroid was observed. At the further increase in the electric field, the bursting of droplets and electrorotation were also investigated. The influence of an additional magnetic field on the droplet dynamics was studied.
