Crystallization Dynamics of a Single Layer Complex Plasma
(Physical Review Letters, 2010-09)
We report a series of complex (dusty) plasma experiments, aimed at the study of the detailed time evolution of the recrystallization process following a rapid quench of a two-dimensional dust liquid. The experiments were ...
Dust particle charge in plasma with ion flow and electron depletion near plasma boundaries
(Physics of Plasmas, 2011-08-01)
The charge on micrometer-sized dust particles suspended in plasma above the powered electrode of radio-frequency discharges is studied. Using a self-consistent fluid model, the plasma profiles above the electrode are ...
Determination of the levitation limits of dust particles within the sheath in complex plasma experiments
(Physics of Plasmas, 2012-01-23)
Experiments are performed in which dust particles are levitated at varying heights above the powered electrode in a radio frequency plasma discharge by changing the discharge power. The trajectories of particles dropped ...
Vertical Interaction Between Dust Particles Confined in a Glass Box in a Complex Plasma
(IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2013-04)
In this experiment, falling particle trajectories within and without a glass box placed on the lower electrode in a Gaseous Electronics Conference reference cell are recorded and analyzed, and the electrostatic forces ...
