We report on the first results for the spectrum of divertor stray light (DSL) and the signal-to-background ratio for D-alpha light emitted from the far SOL and divertor in JET in the recent ITER-like wall (ILW) campaign. The results support the expectation of a strong impact of DSL upon the H alpha (and Visible Light) Spectroscopy Diagnostic in ITE…

Charge eXchange Recombination Spectroscopy (CXRS) will play a crucial role in the diagnosing of burning plasmas: items like helium ash, transport barriers, impurity content or fuel ratio can all be assessed with CXRS. In fact this is the only direct method to obtain information about the light impurity ions, such as temperature, concentrations and …

Charge exchange Recombination Spectroscopy (CXRS) plays a pivotal role in the diagnostics of hot fusion plasmas and is implemented currently in most of the operating devices. In the present report the main features of CXRS are summarized and supporting software packages encompassing "Spectral Analysis Code CXSFIT", "Charge Exchange Analysis Package…

Principal techniques and trends in the validation and analysis of data in magnetic fusion research are described and examples of applications are given. Wellestablished methods to obtain key physical quantities are outlined, as well as newer techniques employing integrated analysis of multiple diagnostics to improve quality and extract additional i…

A status report is given on recent joint activities on the ITER CXRS and BES diagnostic package. Expected measurement performances are reviewed as well as comprehensive discussions are led on an integral approach to the implementation of Core and Edge CXRS observation periscopes. The “first mirror” location, its operational temperature, mainten…

Poloidally asymmetric distributions of nickel ions have been observed experimentally in Joint European Torus optimized shear tokamak plasmas following nickel laser injection experiments. Two types of asymmetries occur. In the first type of asymmetry, which has earlier been observed in high-confinement mode plasmas, nickel ions accumulate on the out…
