"Complex Plasma" or "Dusty
Different people use different names for "Complex
Plasma". Common names include "Dusty Plasma", "Plasma
Crystal", "Coulomb Crystal", etc. So what is the most common
name at the moment? Well, there seems to be no question in the world which
the internet cannot find the answers to these days. With the help of Googlefight,
I decided to experiment and look up the frequency of these names appearing
on the internet.
1 - Frequency of
the different names appearing on the internet
From the above chart (data obtained on
17/03/2004), it seems that "Dusty Plasma" is the most popular
name our "Dusty Plasma Physicists" use. And "Complex Plasma" is
not far behind either being ranked second. Of course the above test is
only for demonstration purpose and should not be taken too seriously.
But to test the accuracy of the above, I decided to take the step further.
2 - Frequency of
ICPDP of different years appearing on the internet
3 - Frequency of
the different popular journals with scientific articles related to complex
plasma appearing on the internet
4 - Frequency of
the different CPL members appearing on the internet
I hope everyone finds the above chart
interesting (and hopefully informative)!
