Structure and scattering in colloidal ferrofluids

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The results of extensive computer simulations of the dipolar hard sphere (DHS) fluid at various densities along a single isotherm, below the estimated critical isotherms, are presented. Three regimes of particle association were identified using a combination of computer graphics and calculations. The progression of structures in the DHS fluid upon compression is reminiscent of the behavior of some other network-forming fluids.
