The influence of monomer shape on aggregate morphologies
(Astronomy & Astrophysics, 2012-03)
Context. The coagulation of dust particles is the initial step in planetary formation, with the precursors to planetesimals believed to form via the collisions of micron and submicron sized dust particles in the disk ...
Effects of monomer shape on the formation of aggregates from a power law monomer distribution
(New Journal of Physcis, 2013)
The coagulation of dust aggregates is an important process in many physical systems such as the Earth’s upper atmosphere, comet tails and protoplanetary discs. Numerical models which study the aggregation in these systems ...
Modeling Agglomeration of Dust Particles in Plasma
(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) ...
Dipole-dipole interactions of charged magnetic grains
The interaction between dust grains is an important process in fields as diverse as planetesimal formation or the plasma processing of silicon wafers into computer chips. This interaction depends in large part on the ...
