A sensitivity study to determine the effectiveness of adding polarimetry to ASDEX Upgrade is carried out using function parameterisation on a simulated equilibrium database, together with a database of randomly chosen density profiles with four degrees of freedom. The robustness of the recovery in the presence of measurement noise and the effects of plasma birefringence are also investigated.
