Test Charge Response of a Dusty Plasma with Grain Size Distribution and Charging Dynamics

  title={Test Charge Response of a Dusty Plasma with Grain Size Distribution and Charging Dynamics},
  author={Muhammad Shafiq},
This doctoral thesis reports analytical and numerical results for the electrostatic response of a dusty plasma to a moving test charge. Two important physical aspects of dusty plasmas, namely grain size distribution and grain charging dynamics were taken into account. In the first case, a dusty plasma in thermal equilibrium and with a distribution of grain sizes is considered. A size distribution is assumed which decreases exponentially with the grain mass for large sizes and gives a simple… CONTINUE READING
