It is shown how one can measure at the same time both the electron line density and the poloidal magnetic field in a Tokamak, using only a polarimeter in order to determine the full state of polarization of radiation transmitted across the plasma. The proposed polarimeter is simpler and more flexible than the more conventional interferometer/polarimeter used on various Tokamaks.
