Abstract

Electrical probes are widely used to determine the electron temperature, density and electrical fields in magnetised plasmas, such as in the scrape-off layer of tokamaks. A rotatable electrical double probe can be used to determine the ion temperature in such a plasma. It is also demonstrated that the rotating electrical double probe is well suited to measurements of the plasma flow speed parallel to the magnetic field.
