Abstract:

An electron spectrometer was designed, calibrated and applied in an auroral research program to measure the electron energy spectra from 100 to 1500 ev. The approach included the practical application of theoretical mathematics to design and calibrate the instrument. Such design and calibration using a digital computer for fast analysis can be used in the creation of similar instruments.
