Title: Determination of the pairwise interaction potential between dust grains in plasma

Abstract

Results are presented from measurements of the pairwise interaction potential between dust grains in plasma. The experiments were carried out with RF capacitive discharges over a wide range of dusty plasma parameters. All the experiments under analysis revealed a repulsive interaction potential that was close in shape to the screened Coulomb potential. The grain charges and the radii at which they were screened are determined.
