Title: Melting of Dust Crystals by Single Particles

Abstract

The melting transition of 2D finite dust clusters has been investigated. Therefore, a single dust particle was placed in a plane below the actual cluster plane. With reducing the gas pressure and with increase of the plasma power an instability due to the non-reciprocal attraction of the lower dust particle was excited that heats the cluster layer. The novel method of singular value decomposition (SVD) has been applied for the analysis of the cluster dynamics during melting.
