Abstract

We present the first detailed experiment on the labyrinthine instabilities of miscible magnetic fluids in a Hele-Shaw Cell. The formation of miscible labyrinthine fingers appears much more irregular with sharp fingertips that differ from their immiscible counterparts significantly. These labyrinthine fingers show great qualitative resemblance with the accompanied numerical simulation.
