Paper Abstract

The pumped divertor(1) is a major upgrade for the JET tokamak. Its purpose is to control the influx of impurities intothe plasma and minimize the heat loading on the target tiles. The plasma parameters in the divertor region, low electrontemperature, Te, (10-100 eV) and high electron density, ne, (-1020 m-3) are very different from those of the bulk plasma.Electron cyclotron emission (ECE) cannot be used to measure local Te because of the resulting low optical depth, T.However low t makes the measurement of electron cyclotron absorption (ECA) feasible(2)(3). The absorption is directlyrelated to the local neTe product.
