͑Received 16 October 2000; accepted 7 November 2000͒ Two omnipresent ingredients of the Universe are plasmas and charged dust. The interplay between these two has opened up a new and fascinating research area, that of dusty plasmas, which are ubiquitous in different parts of our solar system, namely planetary rings, circumsolar dust rings, the interplanetary medium, cometary comae and tails, as well as in interstellar molecular clouds, etc. Dusty plasmas also occur in noctilucent clouds in the arctic troposphere and mesosphere, cloud-to-ground lightening in thunderstorms containing smoke-contaminated air over the United States, in the flame of a humble candle, as well as in microelectronic processing devices, in low-temperature laboratory discharges, and in tokamaks. Dusty plasma physics has appeared as one of the most rapidly growing fields of science, besides the field of the Bose–Einstein condensate, as demonstrated by the number of published papers in scientific journals and conference proceedings. In fact, it is a truly interdisciplinary science because it has many potential applications in astrophysics ͑viz. in understanding the formation of dust clusters and structures, instabilities of interstellar molecular clouds and star formation, decoupling of magnetic fields from plasmas, etc.͒ as well as in the planetary magnetospheres of our solar system ͓viz. Saturn ͑particularly, the physics of spokes and braids in the B and F rings͒, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, and Mars͔ and in strongly coupled laboratory dusty plasmas. Since a dusty plasma system involves the charging and dynamics of massive charged dust grains, it can be characterized as a complex plasma system providing new physics insights. In this paper, the basic physics of dusty plasmas as well as numerous collective processes are discussed. The focus will be on theoretical and experimental observations of charging processes, waves and instabilities, associated forces, the dynamics of rotating and elongated dust grains, and some nonlinear structures ͑such as dust ion-acoustic shocks, Mach cones, dust voids, vortices, etc͒. The latter are typical in astrophysical settings and in several laboratory experiments. It appears that collective processes in a complex dusty plasma would have excellent future perspectives in the twenty-first century, because they have not only potential applications in interplanetary space environments, or in understanding the physics of our universe, but also in advancing our scientific knowledge in multidisciplinary areas of science. © 2001 American Institute of Physics. ͓DOI: 10.1063/1.1343087͔


The interplay between plasmas and charged dust grains has opened up a new and fascinating research area, that of a dusty ͑or complex͒ plasma. A dusty ͑or complex͒ plasma is a normal electron-ion plasma with an additional charged component of small micron-sized particulates. This extra component, which increases the complexity of the system even further, is responsible for the name ‘‘complex plasma.’’ Dusty ͑complex͒ plasmas are ubiquitous in different parts of our cosmic environment,1–5 namely, in planetary rings, in circumsolar and the Phobos dust rings, in the interplanetary medium, in cometary comae and tails, and in interstellar molecular clouds. In fact, the dark bands of dust, which block parts of the Orion, Lagoon, Coalsack, Horsehead, and Eagle nebulae, indicate that dust must have been abundant in the nebulae that coalesced to form the Sun, planets, and other

stars. On the other hand, during the Voyager 1 and 2 flybys of the outer planets and the ICE flyby of comet Giaobini– Zinner, it has been demonstrated that the plasma wave instrument can detect small dust particles striking the spacecraft.6 Complex dusty plasmas also occur in the flame of a humble candle, in the zodiacal light, in cloud-to-ground lightening in thunderstorms containing smoke-contaminated air over the United States, in volcanic eruptions, and in ball lightening. A recent investigation7 suggests that ball lightening is caused by oxidation of nanoparticle networks from normal lightening strikes on soil. Furthermore, meteoritic dust is thought to be present in the Earth’s mesosphere at altitudes of ϳ80–95 km. It has been conjectured that in the cold summer mesopause, ice particles can form around meteoritic dust particles, with the icy dust particles possibly influencing the charge balance of the region.8,9 On the other hand, the presence of charged dust particles in the polar summer mesopause has been invoked to explain aspects of the very strong polar summer radar echoes referred to as polar mesosphere summer echoes ͑PMSE͒,
