Dust particle ordering is discussed in various types of low-temperature plasma, such as thermal plasmas at atmospheric pressure, dc glow discharges, and UV-induced plasmas. Experimental data and numerical simulation results are presented. Properties of ordered structures are discussed and the conditions of formation considered.
