Polychromator for the edge Thomson scattering system in ITER

On the edge Thomson scattering (TS) system in ITER, the filter polychromator is used for dispersing the scattered radiation. Since the signal in TS system is very small, it is crucial to reduce the signal loss from the collection optics to the spectrometer. A band of wavelength in the signal is extracted by an interference filter, and the remaining part is reflected at the interference filter. On the conventional polychromator, a number of reflections are necessary for extracting all wavelength bands. We proposed a new type of polychromator. On the new polychromator, both transmitted and reflected signal from an interference filter are dispersed into transmitted and reflected parts again. It enables to reduce the number of reflection at the interference filters. We showed it is possible to apply in the edge TS system in ITER by setting the injection angle of signal light into the interference filters to be approximately less than 10 degrees.
