Agglomeration of Dust Particles in the Lab
(AIP Conference Proceedings, 2011)
Dust aggregates are formed in a laboratory plasma as monodisperse spheres are accelerated in a self-excited dust density wave. The asymmetric charge on the aggregates causes them to rotate as they interact with the sheath ...
Measurement of net electric charge and dipole moment of dust aggregates in a complex plasma
(Physical Review E, 2014-09-02)
Understanding the agglomeration of dust particles in complex plasmas requires knowledge of basic properties such as the net electrostatic charge and dipole moment of the dust. In this study, dust aggregates are formed from ...
Dipole-dipole interactions of charged magnetic grains
The interaction between dust grains is an important process in fields as diverse as planetesimal formation or the plasma processing of silicon wafers into computer chips. This interaction depends in large part on the ...
Physical interpretation of the spectral approach to delocalization in infinite disordered systems
(Materials Research Express, 2016-12-05)
In this paper we introduce the spectral approach to delocalization in infinite disordered systems and provide a physical interpretation in context of the classical model of Edwards and Thouless. We argue that spectral ...
