Introduction

crystal image
Very regular 2D crystals with noticeable radial compression are produced in the parabolic well. For this crystal, 8.3 µm diameter Melamine spheres are suspended in a 100 mTorr, 1.8 W Argon plasma above a 0.5m radius of curvature lower electrode. The crystal contains 1155 particles and is 21.8mm in diameter.

Research Objectives

Our research objectives address fundamental issues. We are focusing our efforts on those areas where we have unique strengths, novel diagnostics, and/or first-principle models.
