Dust-dust interactions in complex plasmas have been studied when effects of an external magnetic field become important. It is shown that the forces from particle magnetization may result in mutual repulsion as well as attraction. It was found that magnetized grains coalesce, forming field-aligned chains. Since the "disruptive" electrostatic forces increase with the distance from the centre of a chain, whereas the "cohesion" magnetic forces decrease, there is an intrinsic length scale for these… CONTINUE READING
