A method is described which permits nonintrusive 2-dimensional optical measurements of surfaces of inner walls of experimental fusion devices. The technique is based on speckle interferometry. The surfaces to be examined are roughly in the order of the wavelength. In the present feasibility study a multiwavelength continuous wave (CW) laser, a pulsed laser system and a multichannel plate (MCP) intensified charge coupled device (CCD) camera are used. The superposition of image intensities taken at 2 different wavelengths or 2 different angles of incidence gives an adjustable resolution in the um to mm range. First results of reproducible measurements of fusion relevant surfaces are presented.
