    • Using Dust as Probes to Determine Sheath Extent and Structure 

      Douglass, Angela; Land, Victor; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (Journal of Plasma Physics, 2016-07)
      Two in situ experimental methods are presented in which dust particles are used to determine the extent of the sheath and gain information about the time-averaged electric force profile within a radio frequency (RF) plasma ...
    • Vertical Interaction Between Dust Particles Confined in a Glass Box in a Complex Plasma 

      Kong, Jie; Qiao, Ke; Carmona-Reyes, Jorge; Douglass, Angela; Zhang, Zhuanhao; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2013-04)
      In this experiment, falling particle trajectories within and without a glass box placed on the lower electrode in a Gaseous Electronics Conference reference cell are recorded and analyzed, and the electrostatic forces ...
    • Vertical probe-induced asymmetric dust oscillation in complex plasma 

      Harris, B. J.; Matthews, L.S.; Hyde, T. W. (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 ...
    • Vibrational Modes and Instabilities of a Dust Particle Pair in a Complex Plasma 

      Qiao, Ke; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2010-04-10)
      Vibrational modes and instabilities of a dust-particle pair in a terrestrial aboratory complex plasma are investigated by employing an analytical method whereby the plasma wakefield induced by an external electric field ...
