Abstract

The charge that a particle acquires in a plasma environment is certainly the most fundamental parameter of a dusty plasma. Here, the main charging currents to a dust particle, such as the widely used OML currents, are derived. From this, the particle charge under different conditions is determined. Further, the temporal evolution of dust charges and the interaction of dense dust clouds with the plasma are discussed.
