Abstract

We present investigations of the combined effects of Debye-Hückel repulsive and overlapping Debye spheres attractive interaction potentials around charged dust particles on collective modes, phase separation and ordered structures in a strongly coupled dusty plasma. We obtain static and dynamical information via Molecular Dynamics simulations in the liquid and crystallized phases and identify the onset of an instability in the transverse mode, by using lattice summation method. The results are useful for understanding the origin of coagulation/agglomeration of charged dust particles and the formation of ordered dust structures in low-temperature laboratory and space plasmas.
