Laser Manipulation of the Void Edge in Dusty Plasmas Under Microgravity

Abstract

Experiments on the laser manipulation of dust particles in a 3-D dust cloud under microgravity conditions are presented. The experiments have been performed on two parabolic flight campaigns in 2005 and 2006 to study the formation of the dust-free region ("void") in the center of the cloud. The manipulation laser is used to drive particles from the void… (More)
