Implications of the recently discovered effect of channeling of upstream extra particles for transport phenomena in a two-dimensional plasma crystal are discussed. Upstream particles levitated above the lattice layer and tended to move between the rows of lattice particles. An example of heat transport is considered, where upstream particles act as moving heat sources, which may lead to anomalous heat transport. The average channeling length observed was 15-20 interparticle distances. Other…

Wake turbulence observed behind an upstream “extra” particle in a complex (dusty) plasma
An interaction of upstream extra particles with a monolayer highly ordered complex plasma is studied. A principally new abnormal turbulent wake formed behind the supersonic upstream particle is
Interaction of a supersonic particle with a three-dimensional complex plasma
The influence of a supersonic projectile on a three-dimensional complex plasma is studied. Micron sized particles in a low-temperature plasma formed a large undisturbed system in the new 'Zyflex'

A simple vibrational model of heat transfer in two-dimensional (2D) fluids relates the heat conductivity coefficient to the longitudinal and transverse sound velocities, specific heat, and the mean
Spontaneous pairing and cooperative movements of micro-particles in a two dimensional plasma crystal
In an argon plasma of 20W rf discharge at a pressure of 1.38 Pa, a stable highly ordered monolayer of microparticles is suspended. We observe spontaneous particle pairing when suddenly reducing the
Active Janus particles in a complex plasma
Active Janus particles suspended in a plasma were studied experimentally. The Janus particles were micron-size plastic microspheres, one half of which was coated with a thin layer of platinum. They
Spontaneous formation and spin of particle pairs in a single-layer complex plasma crystal
In an experiment with a single-layer plasma crystal, spontaneous pairing of particles was observed upon a sudden reduction of the discharge power. The pairs were oriented vertically with the upper
Experimental investigation of test particle induced micro-structural changes in a finite two-dimensional complex plasma crystal
The microstructural changes induced in a two dimensional complex plasma crystal by the movement of a single extra particle existing below it are investigated experimentally using a DC glow discharge
Mode-coupling instability in a single-layer complex plasma crystal: Strong damping regime
Mode-coupling instability (MCI) in a single-layer complex plasma crystal was studied experimentally in the regime of strong neutral gas damping. To trigger MCI, the discharge power was reduced at
Instability onset and scaling laws of an auto-oscillating turbulent flow in a complex plasma.
A complex plasma under microgravity conditions that is first stabilized with an oscillating electric field and then stopped, the so-called heartbeat instability develops and how the kinetic energy spectrum changes during and after the onset of the instability is studied.
Nonreciprocity and nonlinearity: Applications in complex plasmas and time series
Newton's third law of action and reaction is one pillar of classical mechanics. In nonequilibrium systems this fundamental law can be broken when the effective interaction is mediated by a third
