Nonlinear collisional plasma wakes of small particles — •Sita Sundar, Hanno Kaehlert, Jan-Philip Joost, Patrick Ludwig, and Michael Bonitz — Christian Albrechts Universitaet Kiel Germany - 24098

Dynamical screening and wake effects in complex plasmas have been the subject of many early investigations, including experimental [1] as well as theoretical work. However, it was shown using Linear Response(LR) theory [2] that the characteristic features of the wake potential for non-Maxwellian plasma are qualitatively different from Maxwellian streaming ions. Here, the electrostatic potential of a dust grain in streaming ions in the presence of collision frequency, ν is computed using three-dimensional particle-in-cell(PIC) code ‘COPTIC’ [3]. We compare our numerical results with the wake potential obtained from the LR formalism for Maxwellian and non-Maxwellian cases in linear as well as nonlinear regime. We discuss the physics of distribution function, flux etc. around the grain and present a parametric study of collision frequency vs. wake peak position, peak potential etc. for the non-Maxwellian streaming plasmas.
