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 ...
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 ...
Vertical probe-induced asymmetric dust oscillation in complex plasma
(Physical Review E, 2013-05-24)
A complex plasma vertical oscillation experiment which modifies the bulk is presented. Spherical, micron-sized particles within a Coulomb crystal levitated in the sheath above the powered lower electrode in a GEC reference ...
