Abstract

This paper summarises the underlying principles of polarimetry. On the Tore Supra tokamak, a five channel interferometer has been extended to measure the polarisation of the probing beams. Technical and experimental features of the polarimeter are also presented along with techniques to analyse the signals to obtain the Faraday rotation angles and, if necessary, correct them.
