Abstract:A study of the strongly coupled dusty plasma was carried out over a wide range of plasma pressures and temperatures. The plasma was investigated under conditions of low pressure dc current and inductively-coupled rf gas discharges and under nuclear induced plasma conditions. The plasma was also formed from positively charged dust grains in the presence of a flux of ultraviolet photons. The results of experimental observations of ordered dust structures are reported, and the characteristic features of the dust structures and the conditions for their appearance are discussed.
