Anisotropic self-diffusion in ferrofluids studied via Brownian dynamics simulations.


The anisotropic self-diffusion in ferrofluids in the presence of a magnetic field is studied by Brownian dynamics simulations. It is found that the diffusion parallel to the magnetic field is hindered when compared to the case without field. Depending on the strength of dipolar interactions, the diffusion perpendicular to the applied field is either… (More)
