Abstract

The instability and disintegration of a thin layer of a magnetic fluid in a perpendicular magnetic field are considered. New experimental findings for the dependence of the resulting surface structure of the layer on the external magnetic field and thickness of the layer are reported. Light diffraction by such structures is studied. Experimental data are compared with today’s theoretical concepts.
