At Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, a ferrofluid is a liquid mixed with small metallic particles that can become magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field. Ferrofluids are used in electronics, spacecraft, and medicine, but are also a fascinating way to visualize a magnetic field in three dimensions. Photo courtesy of the U.S. Department of Energy.
