Title: 2-D Reflectometer Modeling for Optimizing the ITER Low-field Side Reflectometer System

Abstract

The response of a low-field side reflectometer system for ITER is simulated with a 2?D reflectometer code using a realistic plasma equilibrium. It is found that the reflected beam will often miss its launch point by as much as 40 cm and that a vertical array of receiving antennas is essential in order to observe a reflection on the low-field side of ITER.
