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 ...
Temperature Measurements of a Dust Particle
(Journal of Plasma Physics, 2016-09)
The thermal motion of a dust particle levitated in a plasma chamber is similar to that described by Brownian motion in many ways. The primary difference between a dust particle in a plasma system and a free Brownian particle ...
