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 ...
Measurement of net electric charge and dipole moment of dust aggregates in a complex plasma
(Physical Review E, 2014-09-02)
Understanding the agglomeration of dust particles in complex plasmas requires knowledge of basic properties such as the net electrostatic charge and dipole moment of the dust. In this study, dust aggregates are formed from ...
Agglomeration of Dust Particles in the Lab
(AIP Conference Proceedings, 2011)
Dust aggregates are formed in a laboratory plasma as monodisperse spheres are accelerated in a self-excited dust density wave. The asymmetric charge on the aggregates causes them to rotate as they interact with the sheath ...
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 ...
