A cylindrical probe with insulating end plugs for investigations of fluctuations of electron temperature and plasma potential is proposed. The radii of the metallic rod and plugs are chosen to optimize the ratio of ion saturation current to electron saturation current (> 1) for the probe oriented parallel to the magnetic field. This probe is applicable when the electron temperature is much larger than the ion temperature.
