Abstract

The influence of electron-ion collision frequency and dust charge on the growth rate of two-stream instability of the electrostatic surface wave propagating at the interface of semi-infinite complex plasma whose constituents are electrons, negatively charged dust, and streaming ions. It is found that the surface wave can be unstable if the multiplication of wave number and ion flow velocity is greater than the total plasma frequency of electrons and dusts. The analytical solution of the growth rate is derived as a function of collision frequency, dust charge, and ion-to-electron density ratio. It is found that the growth rate is inversely proportional to the collision rate, but it is enhanced as the number of electrons residing on the dust grain surface is increased. The growth rate of surface wave is compared to that of the bulk wave.
