MMS 1 FIELDS Suite, Electron Drift Instrument (EDI)

ResourceID
spase://SMWG/Instrument/MMS/1/FIELDS/EDI

Description

Electron Drift Instrument (EDI) determines the electric and magnetic fields by measuring the drift of ~1 keV electrons emitted from the Gun Detector Unit (GDU). Each GDU sends (receives) a coded beam to (from) the other EDI-GDU. The EDI gun is being developed at the Institut fuer Weltraumforschung of the Austrian Academy of Sciences; EDI optics are being developed at the University of Iowa. It is part of the fields investigation which is led by Co-I R. B. Torbert (University of New Hampshire).
