Fluid morphs into startling designs
Wow. What was that? Markus Zahn recalls saying as he watched the black drop of liquid suddenly morph into a design resembling Native American art. The professor of electrical engineering and computer science was watching a video created by Cory Lorenz, a senior in the same department. As a project last summer, Lorenz collaborated with Zahn to explore the effects of time-varying magnetic fields on ferrofluids, materials Zahn is exploring for potential applications in nanotechnology.
