    • Cosmic Dust Aggregation with Stochastic Charging 

      Matthews, L.S.; Shotorban, B.; Hyde, T.W. (Astrophysical Journal, 2013-10-04)
      The coagulation of cosmic dust grains is a fundamental process which takes place in astrophysical environments, such as presolar nebulae and circumstellar and protoplanetary disks. Cosmic dust grains can become charged ...
    • Interaction force in a vertical dust chain inside a glass box 

      Kong, J.; Qiao, K.; Matthews, L.S.; Hyde, T.W. (Physical Review E, 2014-07-31)
      Small number dust particle clusters can be used as probes for plasma diagnostics. The number of dust particles as well as cluster size and shape can be easily controlled employing a glass box placed within a Gaseous ...
    • Mode couplings and resonance instabilities in dust clusters 

      Qiao, Ke; Van Oeveren, E.; Matthews, L.S.; Hyde, T.W. (Physical Review E, 2013-10-16)
      The normal modes for three to seven particle two-dimensional (2D) dust clusters in a complex plasma are investigated using an N-body simulation. The ion wakefield downstream of each particle is shown to induce coupling ...
    • Photophoresis on polydisperse basalt microparticles under microgravity 

      Kupper, M.; de Beule, C.; Wurm, G.; Matthews, L.; Kimery, J.; Hyde, T.W. (Journal of Aerosol Science, 2014-10)
      Photophoresis is a force which can dominate the motion of illuminated aerosols in low pressure environments of laboratory experiments, planetary atmospheres or protoplanetary disks. In drop tower experiments we quantified ...
