Investigation of glow discharge properties with single dust particles

The curve of trajectories of falling dust particles in stratified glow discharge depend on the particle parameters and the discharge conditions. The particle spin is affected too. The forces depend on plasma particle glows and neutral gas, so one can obtain its values by means of the trajectory and the dust grain spin registration. The method of optical visualization is used.
