  • Characteristic measurements within a GEC rf Reference Cell. 

    Creel, James Ruell. (2010-10-08)
    Since its introduction, the GEC rf Reference Cell has provided a baseline for comparison among various experiments performed within the complex (dusty) plasma community. The GEC cell, while providing for data comparison ...
  • Development of a digital optical diagnostic system for the CASPER GEC rf reference cell. 

    Boesse, Carolyn M. (2006-05-11)
    The development and implementation of a completely digital optical analysis system for dusty plasma research has been completed. This system minimizes data loss during acquisition and processing and allows image data to ...
  • Effects of laser light on argon plasma in a GEC rf reference cell. 

    Price, Alexander Thomas. (, 2011-09-14)
    Since lasers have become so powerful in dusty plasma research, it is important to determine the manner in which a laser will affect the plasma. In this work, a Verdi ™ G-Series optically pumped semiconductor laser was used ...
  • Fundamental particle and wave dynamics in dusty plasmas. 

    Zhang, Zhuanhao. (, 2012-11-29)
    Dusty plasma is a low-temperature plasma containing dust particles varying in size from nanometers to micrometers. Due to plasma fluxes to its surface, a dust particle will charge negatively or positively depending on the ...
  • Fundamental physics within complex plasmas. 

    Douglass, Angela Michelle. (, 2012-11-29)
    In this work, both experimental and numerical methods are used to investigate several of the fundamental processes and assumptions commonly found in an earth-based radio-frequency (RF) complex plasma discharge. First the ...
  • Nanomanipulator perturbation of dust crystals in a GEC rf plasma cell. 

    Murphree, Jay Michael. (2010-10-08)
    The vast majority of observable matter is composed of complex plasma. Even with its prevalence, the interactions between the plasma's constituents are not fully understood. In many cases, clouds of dust grains from and can ...
