In this paper, we evaluated electron temperature fluctuations by using a conditional sampling and a statistical phase detection method. These methods allow us to reconstruct probe I-V characteristics at each time delay; that is, we can extract electron temperature and ion saturation current fluctuations in high temporal resolution without complex electronic circuits. Our method was applied to two quasi-coherent fluctuations observed in a linear magnetized plasma device, PANTA. We observed spatiotemporal structures of electron temperature and ion saturation current fluctuations. The results revealed the amplitudes and phase relation between electron temperature and density fluctuations.
