Shizuoka University

Dr. Tetsu Mieno studied plasma physics for 5 years under the supervision of Prof. Noriyoshi Sato in Tohoku University, Japan (Dept. Electronic Engineering), and he was awarded Doctor of Engineering by Tohoku University in 1984. He became an Associate Professor of Shizuoka University (Dept. Physics) in 1992. He studied plasma science (helicon discharge, fine-particle-plasmas, plasma etching, arc discharge, etc.), and nano materials (production of fullerenes, single-walled carbon nanotubes and other carbon nano-materials by the arc discharge method, etc.). In 1999, he became a Professor of Shizuoka University. He is currently studying plasma science and technology, production of functional nano-materials, and utilization of plasma technology for the future.

In the field of plasma physics, plasmas (including charged fine particles) have been actively studied for more than 40 years, and special features of wave phenomena, self-organizations of the particles, potential formations, fluid-like motions of the particles, generations of fine particles in the plasmas, etc. have been investigated. Here, these plasmas are called “fine particle plasmas”, which are also called “dusty plasmas” and “complex plasmas”. This book intends to provide the reader with the recent progress of studies of fine particle plasmas from the viewpoints of wide and interdisciplinary directions, such as self-organized fine particles, Coulomb crystal formation, behaviors of fine particles, their stability, and syntheses of nano-sized particles in reactive plasmas. Further, the phenomena of dense grain particles and the effects of massive neutrinos in galaxy clustering are included.
