A laboratory experiment has been performed in which a temperature gradient is used to generate a large central void in a rf-generated complex plasma. Through the use of laser flashing techniques, two-dimensional velocity vectors have been obtained from particles falling from the top to the bottom of the void. These particles are used to generate a two-dimensional map of the acceleration, and consequently the net forces, that act upon particles in the void.
