  • Crystallization Dynamics of a Single Layer Complex Plasma 

    Hartmann, Peter; Douglass, Angela; Carmona-Reyes, Jorge; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell; Kovacs, Aniko; Donko, Zoltan (Physical Review Letters, 2010-09)
    We report a series of complex (dusty) plasma experiments, aimed at the study of the detailed time evolution of the recrystallization process following a rapid quench of a two-dimensional dust liquid. The experiments were ...
  • Determination of the levitation limits of dust particles within the sheath in complex plasma experiments 

    Douglass, Angela; Land, Victor; Qiao, Ke; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Physics of Plasmas, 2012-01-23)
    Experiments are performed in which dust particles are levitated at varying heights above the powered electrode in a radio frequency plasma discharge by changing the discharge power. The trajectories of particles dropped ...
  • Dust particle charge in plasma with ion flow and electron depletion near plasma boundaries 

    Douglass, Angela; Land, Victor; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Physics of Plasmas, 2011-08-01)
    The charge on micrometer-sized dust particles suspended in plasma above the powered electrode of radio-frequency discharges is studied. Using a self-consistent fluid model, the plasma profiles above the electrode are ...
  • The effect of dust charge variation, due to ion flow and electron depletion, on dust levitation 

    Land, Victor; Douglass, Angela; Qiao, Ke; Matthews, Lorin; Hyd, Truell (AIP Conference Proceedings, 2011)
    Using a fluid model, the plasma densities, electron temperature and ion Mach number in front of a powered electrode in different plasma discharges is computed. The dust charge is computed using OML theory for Maxwellian ...
  • Glow and Dust in Plasma Boundaries 

    Land, Victor; Douglass, Angela; Qiao, Ke; Zhang, Zhuanhao; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2013-04)
    The sheath region is probed in different complex plasma experiments using dust particles in addition to the measurement of the optical emission originating from the plasma. The local maximum in the optical emission coincides ...
  • 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 ...
