A new technique is used to estimate the amplitude of temperature fluctuation in the edge plasma on TST-2. Langmuir probe current-voltage characteristic curves are conditionally reconstituted in terms of the intensity of the floating potential. High/low electron temperatures are obtained in low/high floating potential phases. As a result, normalized temperature fluctuation levels are found to be about 19% or larger.
