How to make large, void-free dust clusters in dusty
(IOP publishing, 2008-12-18)
Collections of micrometer-sized solid particles immersed in plasma are used to mimic many systems from solid state and fluid physics, due to their strong electrostatic interaction, their large inertia, and the fact that ...
Charging and Growth of Fractal Dust Grains
(IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2008-02)
The structure and evolution of aggregate grains formed within a plasma environment are dependent on the charge acquired by the micron-sized dust grains during the coagulation process. The manner in which the charge is ...
Simulation of dust voids in complex plasmas
(IOP Publishing, 2008-11-04)
In dusty radio-frequency (RF) discharges under micro-gravity conditions often a void is observed, a dust free region in the discharge center. This void is generated by the drag of the positive ions pulled out of the ...
Phase Transitions in a Dusty Plasma with Two Distinct Particle Sizes
(Advances in Space Research, 2008)
In semiconductor manufacturing, contamination due to particulates significantly decreases the yield and quality of device fabrication, therefore increasing the cost of production. Dust particle clouds can be found in almost ...
