Abstract:

The use of an electric probe for measurement of indced surface currents on obstacles in a parallel plate region is described. An analysis of the sources of error, and in particular the interaction of the probe with the obstacle, is examined theoretically and experimentally. It is concluded that the technique is capable of yielding measurements of good accuracy. The measured surface currents on flat and curved strips are given as examples. Author
