Gravitational instability and shear stabilization in a dusty plasma layer

Abstract

Summary form only given. We examine the behavior of a diffuse layer of metallic dust particles under the combined influence of gravity and magnetic fields. Such a configuration has recently been proposed as a means of promoting passive removal of orbital space debris by artificially enhancing the drag on the debris, thereby decelerating it and hastening its… (More)
