Description
Experimental realization of ferromagnetic ferrofluids has been a long standing challenge which was recently overcome by the ground-breaking research of A. Mertelj et al. at the Host group. They have successfully combined soft-matter and magnetic-particle physics to achieve ferromagnetic order in suspensions of magnetic platelets in nematic liquid crystals. These ferromagnetic liquid crystals present the first experimental realization of polar nematic liquids and have opened up the possibility of studying an exciting new set of fundamental, previously inaccessible physical phenomena. MagNem aims to shed light on the understanding of complex hydrodynamics of these...
