Measurement of the Faraday rotation improves substantially the precision of the equilibrium reconstruction of the poloidal magnetic field in tokamak plasmas. On (Tokamak à Configuration Variable (TCV)) it is planned to incorporate a multi-chord far infrared (FIR) polarimeter with high temporal resolution into the existing Interferometer system which is presently providing electron density information. Simulations of Faraday rotation profiles for typical TCV shots will also be presented.
