The optical methods used for plasma edge diagnostics in the tokamak TEXTOR are described briefly. Results obtained in discharges without auxiliary heating are presented. The topics considered are the composition of the flux of neutral particles emitted from the limiter and the velocity distribution of these fluxes and the influence of the low Z-impurities, characteristic for TEXTOR, on the plasma edge properties. The significance of the experimental data and the implications for future work are discussed.
