A hybrid directional probe was newly installed in the large helical device for fast ion measurement. The collector of the probe mounts a thermocouple to estimate local power flux and can be also utilized as a collector of a conventional Langmuir probe; therefore, the hybrid directional probe can simultaneously measure both local power density flux and current flux at the same collector surface. The concept and design of the hybrid directional probe, the calibration of the power density measurement, and preliminary result of the fast ion measurement are presented.
