Abstract : Separate aspects are presented of a project aimed at the design and development of the electron gun as a diagnostic probe for the pointby-point investigation of low density flows without disturbing the motion. Part I was undertaken to provide a calculated flux distribution which could be measured by means of the density probe described in Part II. The further development of the electron gun for the determination of temperature at a point in a rarefied gas flow (Part III) was a subsequent project which greatly extended the usefulness of the electron gun in the low density laboratory.
