We obtain the local foil properties of the JT-60U imaging bolometer foil (a single graphite-coated gold foil with an effective area of 9 $$times$$ 7 cm$$^{2}$$ and a nominal thickness of 2.5 microns) such as the thermal diffusivity and the product of the thermal conductivity and the thickness of the foil by the foil calibration. Calibration of the foil was made in situ using a He-Ne laser ($$sim$$27 mW) as a known radiation source to heat the foil. The thermal images of the foil are provided by an IR camera (micro-bolometer type). The parameters are determined by finite element modeling of the foil temperature and comparing the solution to the experimental results. In this work we apply this calibration technique to investigate the spatial variation of the foil parameters. Significant variation in the local temperature rise of the foil due to local heating by the laser beam indicates a spatial variation of the foil parameters. This variation is possibly due to nonuniformity in the carbon coating and/or the thickness of the foil. In a separate work, the spatial calibration data will be used to produce the bolometer intensity data to be utilized in the tomographic analyses.
