In the international fusion materials irradiation facility (IFMIF), the high speed liquid metal lithium (Li) wall jet will be used as a target irradiated by two deuteron beams to generate intense neutrons. It is thus important to obtain the surface wave characteristic for the safety and the efficiency of system in the IFMIF. In this paper, the free surface oscillation was measured at 175 mm and 15 mm downstream from the nozzle exit with an electro-contact probe apparatus installed on a renewal flow channel of an Osaka University Li loop. At the velocity of more than 9 m/s, maximum wave amplitudes were about 2 mm, which exceed the current design value of IFMIF. However, the number of large-amplitude waves was found to be very low.
