Abstract

Dust particle ordering is discussed in various types of low-temperature plasma, such as thermal plasmas at atmospheric pressure, DC glow discharges, UV- and radioactivity induced plasmas. Experimental data are presented. Properties of ordered structures are discussed and the conditions of formation considered.
