Local properties of 3D complex plasmas

Klumov B.

Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Garching, Germany

In my talk I will discuss recent three dimensional complex plasmas
experiments (both ground-based experiments and experiments performed
onboard International Space Station (ISS) at microgravity conditions)
with 3D molecular dynamics simulations of the Yukawa system.
Finally, we discuss in details the first observation of the 3D
crystallization wave propagating through the plasma crystal and
peculiariteis of the complex plasma crystallization in narrow channels.
