Abstract:

The experimental measurement of charge density induced on conducting surfaces often makes use of a short monopole as the charge probe. Measurements on structures containing junctions of unequal radii cylinders have been hampered by incomplete knowledge of the probe characteristics. An investigation of charge probe response as related to the radius of the cylinder on which it is mounted is reported here. An experimental determination of the ratio of probe response when mounted on two different radii cylinders has been conducted using a coaxial line geometry with a step change in radius of the inner conductor. In addition, a theoretical solution in numerical computations of the probe response in relation to the radius of the cylinder upon which it is mounted has been conducted. The results of these studies are presented in the following report. Author
