Abstract
The main objective of this work is the study and analysis of non-linearities forced through oscillating magnetic fields in a conducting fluid where the instabilities are triggered due to magnetohydrodynamic forces. Different geometries have been studied and different surface patterns that break the symmetries have been observed. First, an InGaSn drop of fluid where the system breaks the azimuthal and radial symmetries depending on the volume is observed. Second, we extend the study to an InGaSn annular configuration where the presence of patterns opens the door to discuss the possibility to extend these results to other configurations as biological systems, where the conducting fluid is an electrolyte. This configuration has an added interest, as it has been proposed that the vertigoes triggered on patients in an MRI test could be generated by the interaction of the magnetic field with the electrolyte present in the inner ear.
