Effects of electron temperature fluctuation on measurement of other fluctuations by using of Langmuir probe is investigated in PANTA plasma with finite temperature gradient, where significant electron temperature fluctuations are observed. The temperature fluctuation and its effects are evaluated from spatiotemporal structures of ion saturation current and floating potential, derived by conditional sampling/averaging technique. It is found that electron density fluctuation is in phase with ion saturation current fluctuation, but plasma potential fluctuation is anti-phase with the floating potential fluctuation.
