The high enthalpy shock tunnel, which can provide the high temperature gas conditions for hypersonic flight, is an effective ground facility for the research of reentry problems. It also has the ability of studying real gas effect. The hypersonic test flow condition, with the stagnation enthalpy of 16 MJ/kg and stagnation temperature of 7900 K, was achieved in the JF-10 high enthalpy shock tunnel. The electron density of the flow-field for the 10 degree wedge model was measured using the electrostatic probe, which can obtain sufficient spatial resolution without influencing the flow structure. Results showed that the electrostatic probe has high sensitivity and the spatial electron density can be preferable acquired. The constant bias method can get the dimensionless electron density coupling with the flow field parameters, but the new developed sweeping circuit can get the quantitative value on the basis of effectively reducing the induced noise in the circuit.
