Dust as probes: determining confinement and interaction forces

21 Feb 2020 Ashrafi Khandaker Sharmin Yousefi Razieh Chen Mudi Matthews Lorin S. Hyde Truell W.

Complex plasmas are interesting systems as the charged dust can self-assemble into different types of ordered structures. To understand the mechanisms which govern the transitions from one type of structure to another, it is necessary to know both the dust charge and the confining electric fields within the environment, parameters which are difficult to measure independently...
