Helical Structures in Vertically Aligned Dust Particle Chains in a Complex Plasma
(Physical Review E, 2013-05-16)
Self-assembly of structures from vertically aligned, charged dust particle bundles within a glass box placed on the lower, powered electrode of a Gaseous Electronics Conference rf reference cell were produced and examined ...
Mode coupling and resonance instabilities in quasi-two-dimensional dust clusters in complex plasmas
(American Physical Society, 2014-09-16)
Small quasi-two-dimensional dust clusters consisting of three to eleven particles are formed in an argon plasma under varying rf power. Their normal modes are investigated through their mode spectra obtained from tracking ...
Mode couplings and resonance instabilities in finite dust chains
(American Physical Society, 2015-05-08)
Employing a numerical simulation, the normal modes are investigated for finite, one-dimensional horizontal dust chains in complex plasma. Mode couplings induced by the ion flow within the sheath are identified in the mode ...
