[i¦lek·trik ′prōb]
(plasma physics)
A device used to measure electron temperatures, electron and ion densities, space and wall potentials, and random electron currents in a plasma; consists substantially of one or two small collecting electrodes to which various potentials are applied, with the corresponding collection currents being measured. Also known as electrostatic probe.
