Functionality for determining the floating potential of a Langmuir sweep.


find_floating_potential(voltage, current[, ...])

Determines the floating potential (\(V_f\)) for a given current-voltage (IV) curve obtained from a swept Langmuir probe.


PlasmaPy provides short-named (alias) versions of the most common plasma functionality. These aliases are only given to functionality where there is a common lexicon in the community, for example plasma_frequency has the alias wp_. All aliases in PlasmaPy are denoted with a trailing underscore _.

find_vf_(voltage, current[, threshold, ...])

Alias to find_floating_potential().
