A plasma is a hot, ionized gas and is the most common state of matter in the universe. A dusty plasma arises when a plasma contains negatively or positively charged microparticles suspended within it. The field of dusty plasmas, which started as an outgrowth of the astrophysics community, has rapidly matured into a topic of scientific importance with relevance to the space, laboratory, industrial and fusion plasma communities.
