The Use of Ion Probes in Re-Entry Physics
Abstract : Classical (Langmuir) probe theory is reviewed and the conditions under which it is applicable to the re-entry physics problem identified. Some later developments in probe theory, whichExpand

Boundary-Layer Ion Density Profiles As Measured by
Ion-density profiles in boundary layers associated with supersonic flow of shock-heated air over a flat plate have been measured by cylindrical and flush-mounted electrostatic probes. A method ofExpand

Experimental investigation of flush-mounted electrostatic probes
The behavior of flush-mounted electrostatic probes has been investigated in a pressuredriven, arc-heated shock tube over a wide range of shock tube freestream conditions and probe bias voltage.Expand
