Abstract

The effect of density and size of dust grains on the electron energy distribution function (EEDF) in low-temperature complex plasmas is studied. It is found that the EEDF depends strongly on the dust density and size. The behavior of the electron temperature can differ significantly from that of a pristine plasma. For low-pressure argon glow discharge, the Druyvesteyn-like EEDF often found in pristine plasmas can become nearly Maxwellian if the dust density and/or sizes are large. One can thus control the plasma parameters by the dust grains.
