Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Study of Transformer Oil-Based Ferrofluids
Keywords:external fields, magnetic fluids, magnetic nanoparticles, transformer oil-based ferrofluids
It is known that ferrofluids typically respond to magnetic fields and can be manipulated by such external fields. The particle assembly in magnetic nanofluids can be induced even by a direct current (dc) electric field. An experimental study of magnetic colloidal particles and their changes induced by an external electric field in a ferrofluid based on 2 transformer oils with different concentrations of nanoparticles is presented. By small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), we show the influence of the electric field intensity and the concentration on magnetic nanoparticle aggregates.
