Finite Dust Clusters

Abstract

Now, collective effects in finite systems are discussed. Finite systems are particularly appealing because of the interplay between the electrostatic repulsion among the particles and the confinement due to an external potential. This interplay determines the structure of a cluster and also its dynamics. Structure and dynamics dramatically depend on the exact particle number and the formation of highly symmetric configurations with magic particle numbers is observed. Finally, also phase transitions in these finite systems are presented and analyzed.
