An interesting case to report is the light pattern obtained for a compound magnet of Figure 6, with two cylindrical magnets placed side by side with poles in opposition, in which a more intense magnetic field "embraces" the magnetic field of the smaller cylindrical magnet.
In this paper, we present how to use and characterize the magnetic field of compound magnets using the Ferrocell, analyzing some aspects of the pattern formation and their relationship with some optical properties obtained from the presence of different distribution of the magnetic field, obtaining a map of the magnetic field.
For example, the values of the magnetic field of some compound magnets were obtained with a Lakeshore Gaussmeter model 475 DSP in the plots of Figure 3, at room temperature of 27[degrees] C, with a Hall sensor.
The case of the compound magnets in the tetrapolar configuration is shown in Figure 5(b), and this pattern is associated with the magnetic field of Figure 3(d).
