Estimation of the screening length and the electric charge on particles in single-layered dusty plasma crystals
Search this article
A theoretical approach which has been successful in reproducing results of molecular-dynamics simulations on dusty plasmas is applied to estimate the screening length and the electric charge of two-dimensional dust crystals of melamine particles in the discharge chamber experiment. It has been found that the screening length is of the same order of magnitude as the inter-particle distance and the electric charge decreases on increasing number density of dust particles.
