The ohmic heated plasma in TU-Heliac was biased by a hot-cathode to drive E × B poloidal rotation. Coincident measurements of the line density and ion saturation currents revealed the existence of density collapse accompanied by fluctuation in the poloidally rotating plasma. The radial density profiles just before and after the collapse were estimated. The steep density gradient vanished with the density collapse. The power spectra of the fluctuation were calculated from the ion saturation current obtained with a high-speed triple probe. The frequency of fluctuation was compared to the E × B poloidal rotation frequency, where the fluctuation appeared with density collapse. The fluctuation frequency was 2 to 3 times the rotation frequency. This suggested that the poloidal mode number of fluctuation was m =2 or 3.
