Cosmic Dust Aggregation with Stochastic Charging
(Astrophysical Journal, 2013-10-04)
The coagulation of cosmic dust grains is a fundamental process which takes place in astrophysical environments, such as presolar nebulae and circumstellar and protoplanetary disks. Cosmic dust grains can become charged ...
Mode couplings and resonance instabilities in dust clusters
(Physical Review E, 2013-10-16)
The normal modes for three to seven particle two-dimensional (2D) dust clusters in a complex plasma are investigated using an N-body simulation. The ion wakefield downstream of each particle is shown to induce coupling ...
