  • Dusty Plasma Correlation Function Experiment 

    Smith, Bernard; Vasut, John; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell; Reay, Jerry; Cook, Mike; Schmoke, Jimmy (Advances in Space Research, 2004)
    Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those in protostellar clouds, planetary rings or cometary environments, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of the inter-particle potential energy to ...
  • The effect of electrode heating on the discharge parameters in complex plasma experiments 

    Land, Victor; Carmona Reyes, Jorge; Creel, James; Schmoke, Jimmy; Cook, Mike; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (IOP Publishing, 2011-01-25)
    Thermophoresis is a tool often applied in complex plasma experiments. One of the usual stated benefits over other experimental tools is that electrode temperature changes required to induce thermophoresis do not directly ...
  • A New Inductively Driven Plasma Generator (IPG6)—Setup and Initial Experiments 

    Dropmann, Michael; Herdrich, Georg; Laufer, Rene; Puckert, Dominik; Fulge, Hannes; Fasoulas, Stefanos; Schmoke, Jimmy; Cook, Mike; Hyde, Truell W. (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2013-04)
    As part of the partnership between the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics and Engineering Research (CASPER) at Baylor University and the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) at the University of Stuttgart, a new design for ...
  • Phase Transitions in a Dusty Plasma with Two Distinct Particle Sizes 

    Smith, Bernard; Hyde, Truell; Matthews, Lorin; Reay, Jerry; Cook, Mike; Schmoke, Jimmy (Advances in Space Research, 2008)
    In semiconductor manufacturing, contamination due to particulates significantly decreases the yield and quality of device fabrication, therefore increasing the cost of production. Dust particle clouds can be found in almost ...
