Abstract [en]

Double-probe electric field instrument with long wire booms is one of the most popular techniques for in situ measurement of DC and AC electric fields in plasmas on spinning spacecraft platforms, which have been employed on a large number of space missions. Here we present an overview of the calibration procedure used for the EFW instrument on Cluster, which involves spin fits of the data and correction of several offsets. We also describe the procedure for the offset determination and present results for the long-term evolution of the offsets.
