Conceptual design of polychromator for Thomson scattering system in JT-60SA

Tojo, Hiroshi; Hatae, Takaki; Sakuma, Takeshi; Hamano, Takashi; Itami, Kiyoshi

Significant loss in transmissivity of the used fiber after the 18 years operations in JT-60U are found. Therefore, an optimization of the filter's configuration of the polychromator in Thomson scattering system for the high performance plasmas in JT-60SA is an essential task. Especially, loss in optical components induced by radiation from neutrons and $$gamma$$-ray should be examined. In this paper, an optimization of the filter configuration in the polychromator is executed and expected error degradation due to the radiation damages in the measurements are also estimated with a comparison between used fibers in JT-60U and radiation resistance fibers. In $$T_{rm e}$$ $$>$$ 10 keV, the time evolution of the averaged relative errors for the radiation resistance fibers increase from 3$$sim$$5% by $$sim 1%$$. However, for the used fibers in JT-60U, the errors are 7$$sim$$8% and they reaches more than 10% in some high $$T_{rm e}$$ conditions, suggesting some difficulties in the measurements.
