The dispersion relation for a dust ion-acoustic surface wave is obtained for the semi-bounded dusty plasma containing elongated and rotating charged dust particles. The equilibrium plasma velocity distribution function is taken to be Lorentzian. Dust particles are assumed to be cold. The result shows that the frequency of the dust ion-acoustic surface wave propagating at the plasma-vacuum interface can be lowered by the increase of the angular rotation frequency of the elongated dust particles in the range that kxλe>=1, where kx and λe are the wave number and electron Debye length, respectively. In addition, the increase of the spectral index κ in the Lorentzian distribution function is found to increase the phase velocity of the wave, especially in the case that kxλe≲10. The influence of κ and wave number on the group velocity of the surface wave is also analyzed.

    RF confined electron plasmas are of importance in Paul traps [W. Paul, Rev. Mod. Phys. 62, 531 (1990)]. The stability of such plasmas is unclear and statistical heating arguments have been advanced to explain the observed heating in such plasmas [I. Siemers et al., Phys. Rev. A 38, 5121 (1988)]....

    Dust particles appear on the edge of the tokamak plasma as a result of disruptions and plasma interactions with divertor plates, limiters, or blankets, as well as of pellet injections. The transport of dust in plasmas may play a significant role in the performance of next step tokamaks such as...

    In a magnetized dusty plasma, Hall effect can arise due to collisional processes when, e.g., ion-dust collision decouples the ions from the magnetic field. In this case, due to the dust stoppage of the ions, the Hall electric field can be generated over large scales. The same collisional...

    The isolated charged dust inside the magnetized plasma sheath moves under the influence of the electron and ion drag force and the sheath electrostatic field. The charge on the dust is a function of its radius as well as the value of the ambient sheath potential. It is shown that the charge on...
