Abstract

THE MAIN TASKS OF THE LARGE TOKAMAKS WHICH ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION (T-15 AND TORE SUPRA) AND OF THOSE WHICH HAVE ALREADY BEEN BUILT (TFTR, JET, JT-60 AND DIII-D) TOGETHER WITH THEIR DESIGN FEATURES WHICH ARE RELEVANT TO PLASMA DIAGNOSTICS ARE BRIEFLY DISCUSSED. THE STRUCTURAL FEATURES AND PRINCIPAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM BEING DEVELOPED OR ALREADY BEING USED ON THESE DEVICES ARE ALSO EXAMINED. THE DIFFERENT DIAGNOSTIC METHODS ARE DESCRIBED ACCORDING TO THE PHYSICAL QUANTITIES TO BE MEASURED : ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC DIAGNOSTICS, MEASUREMENTS OF ELECTRON DENSITY, ELECTRON TEMPERATURE, THE ION COMPONENTS OF THE PLASMA, RADIATION LOSS MEASUREMENTS, SPECTROSCOPY OF IMPURITIES, EDGE DIAGNOSTICS AND STUDY OF PLASMA STABILITY. THE MAIN PARAMETERS OF THE VARIOUS DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS USED ON THE SIX LARGE TOKAMAKS ARE SUMMARISED IN TABLES.
