Analysis of driven dust vortex flow is presented in a weakly magnetized plasma. The 2D hydrodynamic model is applied to the confined dust cloud in a non-uniform magnetic field in order to recover the dust vortex flow driven in a conservative force field setup, in absence of any non-conservative fields or dust charge variation. Although the time independent electric and magnetic fields included in the analysis provide conservative forcing mechanisms, when the a drift based mechanism, recently…

Vortex formation in a strongly coupled dusty plasma flow past an obstacle

A pair of counter-rotating symmetric vortices has been observed in the wake behind a stationary obstacle (dust void) in a flowing dusty plasma. A strongly coupled dusty plasma flow with controllable



Analytic structure of a drag-driven confined dust vortex flow in plasma.

It is shown that the eigenmode spectrum of the dust vortex flow can lose correlations with the driving field even at the low dust Reynolds numbers as a result of strong shear and finer scales introduced in the equilibrium dust vorticity spectrum by the boundaries.

Dust vortices, clouds, and jets in nuclear-induced plasmas

The collective movement of dust particles in a plasma formed during deceleration of decay products of californium nuclei in neon is investigated experimentally. For the first time, compact vortex

Generation of two-dimensional dust vortex flows in a direct current discharge plasma

The two-dimensional dust vortex flows are observed in a direct current discharge plasma near the edge of a metal plate which is situated in the dust-particle levitation region. Applying negative dc

Effects of Ion Flow by E×B Drift on Dust Particle Behavior in Magnetized Cylindrical Electron Cyclotron Resonance Plasmas

Interactions between poloidal ion flow associated with E×B drift and dust particles have been investigated in magnetized cylindrical electron cyclotron resonance plasmas, in which radial electric

Transverse forces on dust particles in a magnetized sheath with crossed electric and magnetic fields

Recent experimental findings on the transverse forces acting on dust particles in a discharge under moderate magnetic fields [Puttscher and Melzer, Phys. Plasmas (1994–present) 21, 123704 (2014)] are

Observation of dust torus with poloidal rotation in direct current glow discharge plasma

Observation of dust cloud rotation in parallel-plate DC glow discharge plasma is reported here. The experiments are carried out at high pressures (∼130 Pa) with a metallic ring placed on the lower

Dynamic circulation in a complex plasma.

The dynamic circulation of dust particles in a cylindrical complex plasma is studied experimentally and it is revealed that the dust particle in the center bottom in the cloud remain near a stagnation point and act like tea leaves in a teacup as described by Einstein in 1926.

Rigid and differential plasma crystal rotation induced by magnetic fields

A simple analytical model is used to explain qualitatively the mechanism of the observed particle motion and its dependence on the confining potential and discharge conditions, which takes into account electrostatic, ion drag, neutral drag, and effective interparticle interaction forces.

Rotational motion of dusty structures in glow discharge in longitudinal magnetic field.

The investigation of dust structure formed in glow discharge in an external longitudinal magnetic field with induction up to 400 G applied is presented and the occurrence of structure transformation and its phase transition of the meltinglike type in the magnetic field is shown.

Solitons, shocks and vortices in dusty plasmas

Three important classes of nonlinear phenomena, namely solitons, shocks and vortices in dusty plasmas, have been discussed. The static and mobile charged dust grains have been considered in order to
