Non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma jets have been developed for use on thermosensitive targets at atmospheric pressure, for example polymers or for biomedical applications. Diagnostics on these plasma sources is challenging because of their transient nature, often associated jitter and very small volume. Electric fields, fundamental property essential for the understanding of the discharge, are not well known. In this talk two methods of electric field measurements will be shown applied to a He kHz-driven jet, one based on spectroscopy and one on polarimetry and the obtained results will be discussed.
