Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe the optical design of a catadioptric endoscope for the Joint European Torus (JET). The JET is the flagship experiment in the European nuclear fusion research programme. It is a large tokamak (Russian acronym for “toroidal magnetic chamber”) system located at Culham (UK). At the centre of this machine there is a toroidal (ring - shaped) vacuum vessel where the plasma is confined by magnetic fields. The endoscope explores in two wave bands (4.2 μm - 4.4 μm and 0.6 μm - 0.7 μm) an entire cross section of the vacuum vessel. It then creates for each wave band an image onto a separate area image sensor, located 5500 mm away from the plasma behind a concrete shield. The endoscope performs two different functions namely: infrared thermography on plasma facing components and in vessel inspection.
