    • Charging of aggregate grains in astrophysical environments 

      Ma, Qianyu.; Matthews, Lorin Swint.; Land, Victor; Hyde, Truell Wayne. (Astrophysical Journal, 2013-02-01)
      The charging of dust grains in astrophysical environments has been investigated with the assumption that these grains are homogeneous spheres. However, there is evidence which suggests that many grains in astrophysical ...
    • Charging of aggregate grains in astrophysical environments. 

      Ma, Qianyu. (, 2011-12-19)
      Plasma is a gas in which a portion of particles are ionized. Dust is a ubiquitous component of the universe, and when present in plasma, can form dusty plasma system. Dust in the plasma is generally charged due to the ...
    • Modeling Agglomeration of Dust Particles in Plasma 

      Matthews, Lorin Swint.; Land, Victor; Ma, Qianyu.; Perry, Jonathan D.; Hyde, Truell Wayne. (AIP Conference Proceedings, 2011)
      The charge on an aggregate immersed in a plasma environment distributes itself over the aggregate’s surface; this can be approximated theoretically by assuming a multipole distribution. The dipole-dipole (or higher order) ...
