This paper describes the challenges of Thomson Scattering implementation in the ITER divertor and evaluates the capability to satisfy project requirements related to the range of the measured electron temperature and density. A number of aspects of data interpretation are also discussed. Although this assessment and the proposed solutions are considered in terms of ITER compatibility, they may also be of some use in currently operating magnetic confinement devices. © 2014 IAEA, Vienna.
