    • Electrical Conductivity of the Thermal Dusty Plasma under the Conditions of a Hybrid Plasma Environment Simulation Facility 

      Zhukhovitskii, D.; Petrov, O.; Hyde, T. W.; Herdrich, G.; Laufer, R.; Dropmann, M.; Matthews, L. S. (New Journal of Physcis, 2015-05-27)
      We discuss the inductively heated plasma generator (IPG) facility in application to the generation of the thermal dusty plasma formed by the positively charged dust particles and the electrons emitted by them. We develop ...
    • Mode coupling and resonance instabilities in quasi-two-dimensional dust clusters in complex plasmas 

      Qiao, Ke; Kong, J.; Carmona, J.; Matthews, L. S.; Hyde, T. W. (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 ...
    • Slow Plastic Deformation (Creep) of 2D Dusty Plasma Solids 

      Hartmann, P.; Kovacs, A. Z.; Douglass, A. M.; Carmona-Reyes, J.; Matthews, L. S.; Hyde, T. W. (Physical Review Letters, 201-07-09)
      We report complex plasma experiments, assisted by numerical simulations, providing an alternative qualitative link between the macroscopic response of polycrystalline solid matter to small shearing forces and the possible ...
    • Two-dimensional and three-dimensional Coulomb clusters in parabolic traps 

      Myasnikov, M.; D'yachkov, L.; Petrov, O.; Hyde, T. W.; Kong., J.; Matthews, L. S. (AIP Publishing, 2014-09-08)
      We consider the shell structure of Coulomb clusters in an axially symmetric parabolic trap exhibiting a confining potential U_c(ρ,z)=(mω^2/2)(ρ^2+αz^2) . Assuming an anisotropic parameter α = 4 (corresponding to experiments ...
