Abstract : An interceptive type electric probe for mapping the radial current density profile of high energy and high current electron beams comprises, inter alia, an input sensor, an interface support connector and an output support connector. The entire structure of the electric probe is configured to closely approximate a coaxial transmission line of a predetermined impedance that is opened ended but yet shielded. The nature of the construction of the probe, in terms of materials and techniques, allows for survival thereof in high temperature and intense beam environments.
