A novel integrated charge exchange recombination spectroscopy (CXRS)/beam emission spectroscopy (BES) system is proposed for C-Mod, in which both measurements are taken from a shared viewing geometry. The supplementary BES system serves to quantify local beam densities and supplants the common calculation of beam attenuation. The new system employs two optical viewing arrays, 20 poloidal and 22 toroidal channels. A dichroic filter splits the light between two spectrometers operating at different wavelengths for impurity ion and beam neutrals emission. In this arrangement, the impurity density is inferred from the electron density, measured BES and CXRS spectral radiances, and atomic emission rates.
