Paper Abstract

A microwave reflectometer diagnostic is under construction to perform edge density profile measurements on the DIII-D tokamak at General Atomics. This diagnostic is designed to probe the plasma in front of a high power ICRF (ion cyclotron range of frequencies) fast wave current drive antenna [1]. It is primarily intended for studying and optimizing the power coupling and matching conditions to the ICRF antenna which are highly sensitive to the density profile. Installation and operation of the diagnostic is a collaborative effort between Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and General Atomics (GA).
