The inner domain [D.sub.1] = {([rho],[phi]) : 0 [less than or equal to] p < [R.sub.1],0 [less than or equal to] < [phi] < 2[pi]} and the outer domain [D.sub.3] = {([rho],[phi]) : [R.sub.2] < [rho] < [infinity], 0 [less than or equal to] [phi] < 2[pi]} are filled with vacuum of permeability [[mu].sub.0], whereas layer [D.sub.2] is filled with magnetic fluid of permeability [[mu].sub.f].
Made by infusing a magnetic fluid in a solid microtexture, the researchers demonstrated how the surface could be used to direct the movement and assembly of micro-scale particles, regulate the flow and mixing of millimeter-size droplets, or turn adhesive properties on and off at the macroscale.
