dc.descriptionThis report is the final project of a student in ISR's 2008 Research Experiences for Undergraduates program.en
dc.description.abstractConcerns dealing with the application of superparamagnetic ferrofluid as a drug carrier are studied both experimentally and theoretically. A dynamically controlled electromagnet experiment was designed to focus a stable ferrofluid trap at a specified distance. A theoretical magnetic driving force equation has been compared to experimental results for verification; verification was not achieved. Particle chaining avoidance theory is discussed based on previous research done by other sources.en
