Title: HIGH SENSITIVITY ELECTROSCOPE

Abstract

An electrometer with dependable and rugged construction for measuring cxtremely small charges is de scribed. The electrometer arrangement comprises an electrically conducting fiber totally disposed in a single plane in the absence of electrosthtic forces and affixed at both ends to fiber support means. The fiber is provided with a plurality of adjacent bends in opposite directions along its length..An electrode is disposed between two adjacent bends to apply an electrostatic force normal to the plane of the fiber whereby the fiber is caused to twist out of its plane in proportion to the potential apptied between the fiber and the electrode.
