Abstract [en]

The Cassini Langmuir probe (onboard RPWS experiment) has provided wealth of information about the kronian cold plasma environment since the Saturn Orbit Insertion in 2004. The usage of the Langmuir probe is based on the fitting of the currentvoltage curve which brings information on several plasma parameters in cold and dense plasma regions. The ion part of the I-V curve may however be influenced by energetic particles hitting the probe, leading to an enhanced ion current measured. We report here the influence of 300 eV electrons on the probe current, with a current belt observed between Dione and Rhea.
