A new method for measuring of the dust particle charge in a glow discharge plasma is described. The inverse problem of the restoration of the particle charge on the basis of its videotaped trajectory around the electric probe was solved. The obtained results of dust parameters can be used for the development of new methods for dusty plasma diagnostic.
