Spectroscopic measurement system for ITER divertor plasma; Impurity influx monitor (divertor)

Sugie, Tatsuo; Ogawa, Hiroaki; Kasai, Satoshi*; Kusama, Yoshinori

The detailed design of the Impurity Influx Monitor (divertor) has been carried out to provide the measurement capability in the harsh environment. The potential damaging effects for the first mirrors mounted close to the plasma are the formations of coatings of impurities and the deposition of the dust. Mitigating measures to minimize the degradation of their performance by these effects, such as changes in the reflectivity, are adopted: for example, the plasma is viewed through a small aperture, and baffle plates are inserted in front of the first mirrors. However, it will not be possible to prevent the degradation completely. It is important to know the change of the sensitivity of the optical systems. It is not feasible to install a light source in the vacuum chamber of ITER during operations and so an alternative method is needed. The in-situ calibration system using a micro retro-reflector array has been developed as a possible method.
