Photonic Dipole Contours of Ferrofluid Hele-Shaw Cell (Off Axis Lighting)
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 exact dipole nature. This is off axis lighting version, per figure 9 of the paper. h
