ABSTRACT
An investigation on the possible collective electric attraction between like-charged dust particles has been performed in an isotropic homogeneous complex (dusty) plasma in which a balance between plasma creation due to ionization and plasma loss due to the absorption on dust particles has been reached. The analysis is made on the basis of a self-consistent fluid model, which includes plasma ionization, plasma loss on dust particles, dust charge variations, and ion-neutral friction. It is shown that the interaction potential can have an attractive part in the stability regime of the ionization-absorption balance with respect to ion perturbations only under very limited circumstances.
