In our previous published research we have studied the applications of the ferrolens for the observation and qualitative analysis of non-homogeneous magnetic fields. Latest developments over the last few years of the ferrolens increased multifold the sensitivity of this device allowing it to display magnetic fields as low as 10mT in strength and therefore it is possible now to observe also the homogeneous (i.e. straight parallel magnetic flux lines of uniform density in space) magnetic field…

Real Time Observation of Stationary Magneton
The magnetic dipole field geometry of subatomic elementary particles like the electron differs from the classical macroscopic field imprint of a bar magnet. It resembles more like an eight figure or
Magnetic-field-induced optical anisotropy in ferrofluids: a time-dependent light-scattering investigation.
It is proposed that the time evolution of the scattering patterns, which is very fast at short times and significantly slower at long times, can be explained using a model based on a two-stage chain formation and coarsening processes.
Observing Dynamical Systems Using Magneto-Controlled Diffraction
Observing the light passing through a thin layer of ferrofluid, we can see the occurrence of interesting effects, both in the formation patterns within the ferrofluid layer and in the dispersion of
