Progress Report on Simulation of
2 Particles Oscillation
Leanic Couedel has been working with us
for almost a month now. He has settled down in Sydney and had made significant
progress in his project in such short amount of time.
In his project, the interaction between two vertically aligned dust particles
in 1D had been simulated. An understanding of how these particles behave allow
more complicated simulations to be developed for our understanding in the experimental
data. In his 1D model, he demonstrated that the behavior of the 2 particles
system is similar to coupled harmonic oscillator. He also showed that Coulomb
force is insufficient to explain the behavior of the dust particles. More details
on the result is expected to be published soon.

Still got 3 months to go.
