Phase separation was found in an eicosane-based ferrofluid in zero applied field. Upon applying a magnetic field, the-condensed phase breaks up to form a lattice of periodic columns. The periodicity lambda scales with the layer thickness L. Two scaling regimes were found. When thickness is small, where no branching is observed, lambda proportional to L(1/2). In the large-thickness regime, a tree type of structure develops at the tail of each column, and the columns are separated by side bands while the scaling relation crosses over to lambda proportional to L(2/3).
