We present the main design options and implementation of an X -mode reflectometer developed and successfully installed at JET using an innovative approach. It aims to prove the viability of measuring density profiles with high spatial and temporal resolution using broadband reflectometry operating in long and complex transmission lines. It probes t…

The measurement of the fuel mixture remains a very difficult task in thermonuclear plasmas, where the hydrogen isotopes are fully stripped and do not emit line radiation. On the other hand, direct determination of the ion species mix will be essential in the reactor to keep the mixture close to 50/50 and maximize the fusion output. In this paper, t…

We present a study performed in ASDEX Upgrade H mode regime based on results from the broadband FM-CW reflectometry diagnostic, equipped with the unique capability of measuring the plasma density profile both at the low and high field sides of the tokamak. The plasma edge dynamics due to fast events such as the Edge Localized Modes (ELMs) is analyz…
