Current-voltage characteristic curve for Langmuir probe was completed for a real gas like nitrogen plasma. Preliminary calculations were made to determine13; the Debye shielding length and different mean free paths for nitrogen plasma. Depending on the values of these quantities, the Child-Langmuir law and the diffusion theory were applied to determine the characteristic curve at different voltage ranges, where one or other theory is only applicable. Specification of the proposed probe to be fabricated in NAL is discussed.
