- experimental unit "Plasma crystal 3";
- two TEAC video tape recorders, included in the
on-board "Telescience" equipment.
A study of growth of plasma-dust structures in zero
A study of particle clouds behavior and internal flow
structure in plasma-dust crystals.
Conducting two series of measurements that are needed
to study the physics of the particles contained in
low-pressure plasma, and to study quasi-stable plasma
structures formed out of these particles.
THE CONDUCT OF THE EXPERIMENT
AND EXPECTED RESULTS:
- video recording of plasma crystal formation process;
- digital data on the experiment parameters (gas
pressure, high-frequency radiated power, the size
of dust particles from which the crystal is formed)
written to PCMCIA card.
