The NIST chamber was connected to the PTW electrometer. Prior to performing the measurements, a voltage was applied to the chamber overnight to allow sufficient time for the chamber to stabilize.
The controversial Church of Scientology will be tried in a French court for "organised fraud" and seven of its members for illegally prescribing drugs, legal sources said yesterday.The charges stem from a case taken by a woman who said she paid the church more than $28,000 for lessons, books, drugs and an "electrometer", a device which the church says can measure a person's mental state.She allegedly made the payments after being approached by Scientologists in a Paris street in 1998.
In a different set of measurements, the induction probes were directly connected to a Keithley type 6517A electrometer in order to determine the absolute electrostatic charge reading.
Another minister had me hold two metal cans hooked up to an electrometer that can detect "psychic strain." He told me to consider various aspects of my life: my day, my relationships, my job, etc.
According to Quant Technologies, the QT-500 provides better sensitivity than detectors based on charged aerosol, which are somewhat limited by inefficient charging of small particles and electrometer noise.
