Ion sensitive probes serve to measure the ion temperature in magnetized plasma. The principle of the probe is based on geometrical shielding of the ion collector from plasma electrons. According to the basic theory, when the collector is retracted in the tube, electrons should not be able to reach it and the collector becomes sensitive to ions. However, experimental results show that the electron shielding only works in the case when the potential of the collector is the same as the potential of the inside surface of the tube. This problem is investigated using a full 3D particle-in-cell Cartesian code. A positive potential structure is formed at the entrance of the tube due to the space charge of ions that gyrate inside. This structure produces E × B drifts, which push electrons into the shielded space. Simulations revealed that electrons can penetrate inside the geometrical shadow in all studied cases.
