Abstract

An exact dispersion relation is obtained for linear dust-compressional waves in a one-dimensional plasma crystal consisting of cold dust particles located at lattice points uniformly spaced in equilibrium. This general dispersion relation reduces in asymptotic limits to the dust-acoustic and dust-lattice wave dispersion relations. Implications for experiments are discussed.
