This paper presents experimental results of an in-situ calibration method for Thomson scattering diagnostics in the TST-2 spherical tokamak. Usage of a double-pass scattering configuration enables finding the ratio of the output signal from the first (back scattering) pass to that from the second (forward scattering) pass, which can be treated as an independent function of electron temperature. The temperature from this new method shows a good agreement with that obtained by a standard method (single pass). Relative sensitivities among spectral channels can be then obtained from the method without accessing the machines. The sensitivities from this new method correspond to the values obtained from direct measurements within 5% except for a spectral channel with a wide band-pass range. These results demonstrate feasibility of this new in-situ calibration method, which can be applied to Thomson scattering diagnostics in severe radiation condition.
