An all quartz electroscope system is described whose sensitivity may be varied over a wide range by changing one potential. Like other previously described systems, it accumulates a definite quantity of electric charge, for given potentials, and then automatically recharges itself. When this recharging occurs an electrical pulse may be taken off for recording purposes. It is possible to change the sensitivity by a factor of 500.
