Abstract:

Specimen particles in pressurized liquid sea are reoriented by magnetic stirring as a magnetic field surrounding the particles changes direction and the particle reorient themselves to respond to the change. Nonmagnetic particles as well as magnetic particles can be reoriented by simply including magnetic particles along with the nonmagnetic particles in the sea so that the magnetic particles collide with the nonmagnetic particles or attach to them so as to reorient themindividual particles as they themselves reorient is response to change in direction of the magnetic field.
