How the magnetic field affects light is surprising.

About the candle flame;  it is known that the flame
is ionized plasma and that it will conduct electricity
so it seems reasonable that a magnetic field would
influence it in some way.  Although, there may be
more to the story.

Certainly does make one think on it!

What is plasma?

Plasma is considered the fourth state of matter. The three other states are solid, liquid, and gas. Plasma is a cloud of protons, neutrons and electrons where all the electrons have come loose from their respective molecules and atoms, giving the plasma the ability to act as a whole rather than as a bunch of atoms. A plasma is more like a gas than any of the other states of matter because the atoms are not in constant contact with each other, but it behaves differently from a gas. It has what scientists call collective behavior. This means that the plasma can flow like a liquid or it can contain areas that are like clumps of atoms sticking together.


Sooo.  Would be interesting to try some things.  Circular coil above flame. Around flame or below flame.

What is Plasma Cutting and Gouging?

How Does a Plasma Cutter Work?

Some of the new Plasma Cutters are very small and
inexpensive.
