Abstract

The problems of measuring electron cyclotron emission from magnetically confined plasmas are briefly outlined. Several different techniques for measuring the emission are discussed and compared, and their areas of optimum application identified. The results obtained in many independent measurements of the emission are summarized, and the extent to which the diagnostic potential of this emission has been realized is discussed. Finally, a system presently under construction for one of the next generation of large toroidal plasmas (JET) is briefly described.
