“Experimental Measurements of Relaxation Time Scale in a Dusty Plasma” by Mr. Chun-Shang Wong, Department of Physics & Astronomy, The University of Iowa

Abstract:  In a dusty plasma experiment, we analyze several time scales: the dust-plasma frequency and two measures of a relaxation time. The latter concept, which is borrowed from the literature for liquids, characterizes how long it takes for charged particles to reorganize after being perturbed.
