The sheath region is probed in different complex plasma experiments using dust particles in addition to the measurement of the optical emission originating from the plasma. The local maximum in the optical emission coincides with the breaking of quasi-neutrality at the sheath boundary, as indicated by the vertical-force profile reconstructed from dust-particle trajectories as well as by the local onset of dust-density waves in high-density dust clouds suspended in a dielectric box.
