Abstract

Measurement of the Faraday rotation improves substantially the precision of the equilibrium reconstruction of the poloidal magnetic field structure in tokamak plasmas. On TCV it is planned to incorporate a multi-chord FIR polarimeter with high temporal resolution (ms) into the existing interferometer system which is presently providing electron density information. Simulations of Faraday rotation profiles for typical TCV shots are presented.
