Abstract / Description:We demonstrate how the observation of dynamic Mach cones in dusty plasma experiments allows one to follow the evolution of the dust acoustic wave velocity as charges on dust particles change, or as their mass changes. In experiments in which only the charge is changing due to, e.g., the application of a thin coating on UV-illuminated dust particles, the coating rate may be inferred through the analysis of the Mach cone pattern. In other experiments where the dust sizes are changing, also leading to some change in charge, the growth rate can be followed.
