Abstract

An imaging spectrometer using a sapphire prism as dispersing element has been conceived at Tore Supra for the spectral range of 1-4 µm. It measures simultaneously at various wavelengths the temperature on distributed high heat-flux elements under plasma impact with 36 optical fibers, four of which are ZrF4 fibers. It employs an InSb focal plane array detector s256p320 pixelsd behind a silicon filter and a ZnS window yielding a dynamic range of 200�1500 °C with 20 ms temporal resolution. The fiber transmission and the spatial variation of gain and background of the camera are calibrated using a light source with integrating sphere. With a blackbody source one determines the nonlinearity of the average gain and controls its stability during operation. The spectral dispersion of about 24 nm/pixel is determined with interference filters and controlled with a spectral lamp. The measurements at various wavelengths allow to determine the temperature distribution in the field of view.
