    Abstract

    The dynamical ordering formation of columnar lattices in magnetic fluid thin films subjected to low-frequency oscillating perpendicular magnetic fields was analyzed. It was observed that the concentrated phase forms cylindrical columns that construct two-dimensional lattices. It was shown that the ordered structure of magnetic fluid thin films is the basis for potential optical applications. A significant method to form ordered structures of grating optical devices with magnetic fluid thin films for the high potential of optical applications was proposed.
