We improved the signal-to-noise ratio of a Reynolds stress (RS) probe in order to measure the Reynolds stress more accurately. By introducing a shield pipe in the probe, the power spectral density of the noise was suppressed to approximately one tenth in an electric biasing experiment. It was also confirmed that the leak current in the RS probe, which had been used in previous experiments, was small enough for the study of drift waves in our linear device.
