Wall Reflections of Plasma inside ITER chamber

WSI worked with ITER to analyze the effects of stray light on optical diagnostics. Use of beryllium walls meant that wall reflections could be bright enough to influence diagnostics. The ray-tracing software LightTools was used. SOLPS data of ITER scrape off layer was converted to light sources in LightTools, and wall reflectivity properties were modeled.
