Langmuir Probe

4 01 2010

If you wish to replicate the Sydney experiment, you must first obtain a Langmuir Probe.

I have requested quotes for these commercial Langmuir Probes:

SmartProbe

Automated Langmuir Probe (ALP) System

ESPion

BTW, how do you pronounce Langmuir? I imagine it rhymes with “pang-doer” or maybe “ma-doer”. ANSWER: it rhymes with lang-meer.

At the end of the day, a Langmuir probe is just an electrode which can withstand the temperature of the plasma, off which you measure the voltage.

You might want to think twice about pay $$$ for something that you can make yourself, unless there is specific precision you’re after.
