Structure and Dynamics of Finite Dust Clusters

Chapter
Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 59)

Abstract

The structure of matter is widely determined by the action of electrostatic (Coulomb) forces. Systems with only a small number of trapped charge carriers, so-called Coulomb clusters, have a particular charm since their structural and dynamic properties strongly depend on the exact particle number. Dusty plasmas provide a unique possibility to trap, manipulate, and observe dust Coulomb clusters in different confinement geometries with high spatial and temporal resolution.
