Abstract

In actual and future large tokamaks, the electron temperature Te and density ne profiles must be measured with a single discharge and laser shot. We have reached this objective in a rather simple way: Te is deduced from the ratio of powers scattered into two large spectral intervals, while ne is deduced from the absolute power detected in one of the intervals and from the knowledge of Te. We discuss this method and describe the spectrometers designed for this purpose and their calibration. Te, ne profiles are obtained in a single shot on TFR with a nine-channel scattering system based on these two-detector spectrometers.
