INTRODUCTION TO FERRODYNAMICS

4 4 Ferrofluids Colloidal dispersion of permanently magnetized particles undergoing rotational and translational Brownian motion. Established applications rotary and exclusion seals, stepper motor dampers, heat transfer fluids Emerging applications MEMS/NEMS – motors, generators, actuators, pumps Bio/Medical – cell sorters, biosensors, magnetocytolysis, targeted drug delivery vectors, in vivo imaging, hyperthermia, immunoassays Separations – magneto-responsive colloidal extractants R p ~ 5nm

5 5 Ferrofluid Magnetic Properties Water-based Ferrofluid  0 M s = 203 Gauss  = ;  0 = 0.65,  =1.22 g/cc,  7 cp d min  5.5 nm, d max  11.9 nm  B =2-10  s,  N =5 ns-20 ms Isopar-M Ferrofluid  0 M s = 444 Gauss  = ;  0 = 2.18,  =1.18 g/cc,  11 cp d min  7.7 nm, d max  13.8 nm  B =7-20  s,  N =100 ns-200 s

6 6 Langevin Equation Measured magnetization (dots) for four ferrofluids containing magnetite particles (M d = 4.46x10 5 Ampere/meter or equivalently μ o M d = 0.56 Tesla) plotted with the theoretical Langevin curve (solid line). The data consist of Ferrotec Corporation ferrofluids: NF 1634 Isopar M at 25.4 o C, 50.2 o C, and o C all with fitted particle size of 11 nm; MSG W11 water-based at 26.3 o C and 50.2 o C with fitted particle size of 8 nm; NBF 1677 fluorocarbon-based at 50.2 o C with fitted particle size of 13 nm; and EFH1 (positive α only) at 27 o C with fitted particle size of 11 nm. All data falls on or near the universal Langevin curve indicating superparamagnetic behavior.

7 7 Ferrofluid Magnetization Force A magnetizable liquid is drawn upward around a current-carrying wire.

8 8 Larmor Frequency = MHz/Tesla for Protons ( = gyromagnetic ratio, = MHz/Tesla for nucleus.) 2. Application of Magnetic Media to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) The fundamental elements of MRI are (a) dipole alignment, (b) RF excitation at Larmor frequency, (c) slice selection and (d) image reconstruction. T2 decay is characterized by the exponential decay envelope of the magnetization signal in the {xy} plane after excitation. T1 recovery is characterized by the exponential growth of the magnetization along the z axis as the vector returns to the equilibrium magnetization.

9 9 Ferrofluids as Contrast Agents in MRI Two categories of contrast agents in MRI: Ferrofluids called superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) contrast agents (currently smaller market share) Gadolinium-based contrast agents N.S.

24 24 (a) Von Quincke’s rotor consists of a highly insulating cylinder that is free to rotate and that is placed in slightly conducting oil between parallel plate electrodes. As DC high voltage is raised, at a critical voltage the cylinder spontaneously rotates in either direction; (b) The motion occurs because the insulating rotor charges like a capacitor with positive surface charge near the positive electrode and negative surface charge near the negative electrode. Any slight rotation of the cylinder in either direction results in an electrical torque in the same direction as the initial displacement. 4. Dielectric Analog: Von Quincke’s Rotor (Electrorotation) Von Quincke’s Rotor Von Quincke’s Rotor

25 25 Definition of Quincke Rotation: Spontaneous rotation of insulating particles (or cylinders) suspended in a slightly conducting liquid subjected to a DC electric field with the field strength exceeding some critical value (Jones, 1984, 1995) where is the charge relaxation time in each region when More on Quincke’s Rotor (Electrorotation) Two Competing Forces (Torques): The electrical torque and the fluid viscous torque exerted on the particle

26 26 The electric torque For a small perturbation of rotation to grow, the equation of angular motion for the particle is re-written as (Jones, 1995): The bracket term should have a value larger than zero for the small perturbation to grow (Jones, 1995), thus Torques Exerted on a Micro-particle The fluid viscous torque

28 28 Experiments have shown that for a given pressure gradient, the Poiseuille flow rate can be increased (Lemaire et al., 2006) by introducing micro-particle electrorotation into the fluid flow via the application of an external direct current (DC) electric field. 5.
