    • Analysis of Magnetic Field Plasma Interactions Using Micro Particles as Probes 

      Dropmann, Michael; Laufer, Rene; Herdrich, Georg; Matthews, L.S.; Hyde, T. W. (American Physics Society/ Physical Review E, 2015-08-26)
      The interaction between a magnetic field and plasma close to a nonconductive surface is of interest for both science and technology. In space, crustal magnetic fields on celestial bodies without atmosphere can interact ...
    • Ion-wake Field inside a Glass Box 

      Chen, Mudi; Dropmann, Michael; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (Physical Review E, 2016-09)
      The confinement provided by a glass box is proving ideal for the formation of vertically aligned structures and a convenient method for controlling the number of dust particles comprising these dust structures as well as ...
    • Mapping of force field in a capacitively driven rf plasma discharge 

      Dropmann, Michael; Chen, Mudi; Sabo, Hannah; Laufer, Rene; Herdrich, Georg; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell W. (Journal of Plasma Physics, 2016-07)
      In this paper a method is described that allows mapping of the forces acting on dust particles in a GEC reference cell. Monodisperse particles are dropped into the plasma environment and their trajectories are tracked using ...
