Dust particle charge in plasma with ion flow and electron depletion near plasma boundaries
(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 ...
Crystallization Dynamics of a Single Layer Complex Plasma
(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 ...
Vertical Interaction Between Dust Particles Confined in a Glass Box in a Complex Plasma
(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 ...
Determination of the levitation limits of dust particles within the sheath in complex plasma experiments
(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 ...
