Calculations have shown that when a plasma of one kind of particle (one‐component plasma or OCP) is below a certain temperature, it will undergo a phase transition and the particles will form a crystalline (bcc) array.1 The relevant parameter is Γ(q2/a)/kT (where a is the average spacing and the T the temperature) and the transition takes place at Γ=170. The properties of proposed storage rings for heavy ions with q≫e, are such that an ordered array may actually be realized.
