find_ion_saturation_current(voltage, current, *)

Determines the ion-saturation current (\(I_{sat}\)) for a given current-voltage (IV) curve obtained from a swept Langmuir probe.


PlasmaPy provides aliases of the most common plasma functionality for user convenience. Aliases in PlasmaPy are denoted with a trailing underscore (e.g., alias_). For further details, please refer to the contributor guide’s section on aliases.

find_isat_(voltage, current, *[, fit_type, ...])

Alias to find_ion_saturation_current().
