Abstract

Abstract The influence of an external magnetic field on the interaction of dusty particles in a gas discharge plasma is considered. It is shown that the attractive force of dusty particles in weak magnetic fields grows with the increasing field as H 2 3 and tends to a constant in the limit of strong magnetic fields. It is also demonstrated that a dusty molecule in a magnetic field can have a discrete number of equilibrium positions.
