  • Multipole Expansions of Aggregate Charge: How Far to Go? 

    Matthews, Lorin; Coleman, Douglas A.; Hyde, Truell W. (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2016-04)
    Aggregates immersed in a plasma or radiative environment will have charge distributed over their extended surface. Previous studies have modeled the aggregate charge using the monopole and dipole terms of a multipole ...
  • Coagulation in the Vicinity of a Gap-Opening Jupiter-Mass Planet 

    Carballido, Augusto (Astrophysical Journal, 2016-06)
    We analyze the coagulation of dust in and around a gap opened by a Jupiter-mass planet. To this end, we carry out a high-resolution magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation of the gap environment, which is turbulent due to the ...
  • Temperature Measurements of a Dust Particle 

    Kong, Jie; Qiao, Ke; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (Journal of Plasma Physics, 2016-09)
    The thermal motion of a dust particle levitated in a plasma chamber is similar to that described by Brownian motion in many ways. The primary difference between a dust particle in a plasma system and a free Brownian particle ...
  • Ion-wake Field inside a Glass Box 

    Chen, Mudi; Dropmann, Michael; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (Physical Review E, 2016-09)
    The confinement provided by a glass box is proving ideal for the formation of vertically aligned structures and a convenient method for controlling the number of dust particles comprising these dust structures as well as ...
  • Mapping of force field in a capacitively driven rf plasma discharge 

    Dropmann, Michael; Chen, Mudi; Sabo, Hannah; Laufer, Rene; Herdrich, Georg; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (Journal of Plasma Physics, 2016-07)
    In this paper a method is described that allows mapping of the forces acting on dust particles in a GEC reference cell. Monodisperse particles are dropped into the plasma environment and their trajectories are tracked using ...
