Measurements of quasi-static and low-freqency electric fields with spherical double probes on the IESS-1 spacecraft
1978 (English)In: IEEE Trans Geosci Electron, ISSN 00189413, Vol. GE-16, 258-261 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The spherical double-probe electric-field experiment on the ISEE - 1 spacecraft is described. It is shown that the isntrument measures magnetospheric, magnetosheath, and solar wind electric fields with a sensitivity well below one mv/m. Design features and diagnostic experiments performed in orbit to understand the instrument operation are discussed.
