Abstract
The ultimate aim of this research is the development of an instrument capable of detecting and measuring the presence of an electrostatic field created by local static electric charge. The sensor operates on a physical principle not yet exploited for field measurement. The final instrument will be accurate, lightweight, small, inexpensive to build, mechanically rugged (resistant to mechanical and acoustic vibrations and shock), and capable of operating over a broad temperature range and in corrosive environments (including the outdoors). In summary, the proposed instrument will be superior in all respects to pre~iou~ static electric field sensor designs.
