We derive dispersion relations for a system of identical particles confined in a two-dimensional annular harmonic well and which interact through a Yukawa potential, e.g., a dusty plasma ring. When the particles are in a single chain (i.e., a one-dimensional ring), we find a longitudinal acoustic mode and a transverse optical mode which show approximate agreement with the dispersion relation for a straight configuration for large radii of the ring. When the radius decreases, the dispersion relations modify: there appears an anticrossing of the modes near the crossing point resulting in a frequency gap between the lower and upper branches of the modified dispersion relations. For the double chain (i.e., a two-dimensional zigzag configuration), the dispersion relation has four branches: longitudinal acoustic and optical and transverse acoustic and optical.

    Pure dust Bernstein waves are investigated using non-Maxwellian kappa and (r,q) distribution functions in a collisionless, uniform magnetized dusty plasma. Dispersion relations for both the distributions are derived by considering waves whose frequency is of the order of dust cyclotron...

    The biggest observational mystery is the presence in cosmic rays particles with energies about 10[sup 21] eV which should be destroyed while travelling through 3[sup 0]K black body radiation. One possibility is that they are not protons but dust particles containing 10[sup 10] or more protons...

    In this work, we investigate particle charges as a function of the particle size by studying the particle levitation position experimentally. These data were compared with those obtained on the basis of the model calculation of the particle levitation, involving the OML approximation for...

    We investigate the validity of the epicyclic approximation to the motion of charged dust grains about Saturn. Non-ideal forces, such as planetary oblateness, solar radiation pressure, plasma drag, and the effects of time-dependent charging are neglected. A new and simplified derivation of the...

    Experimental observation of rotation in a strongly coupled dusty plasma in the absence of external magnetic field is reported. It appears that self consistent field of the rotating particles is responsible for the rotation. The rotating structure resembles a convective cell pattern in a vertical...
