A new method is developed for calculating electric microfield distributions in a plasma. The method uses a coupling-parameter integration technique to express the Fourier transform of the microfield distribution in terms of a special pair-distribution function. An approximation of this function yielding the exact second moment of the microfield distribution gives results which agree well with computer simulations for strongly coupled one-component plasmas.
