By adjusting the anode current and axial magnetic strength of a dc-glow-discharge dusty plasma, we have found plasma and dust conditions conducive to dusty plasma structurization, similar to the one discussed theoretically by Morfill and Tsytovich [Plasma Phys. Rep. 26, 682 (2000)]. The structurization instability leads to the formation of a pattern where the dust suspension transforms into alternating stationary regions of high and low dust densities. We have measured the dependence of the… CONTINUE READING
