Describes a Thomson scattering diagnostic planned for the W7-X stellarator that provides sufficient access to the vacuum vessel to probe several scattering geometries, allowing for scattering vectors parallel, perpendicular, and oblique with respect to the magnetic field. Experiences from the W7-AS stellarator; Spectral range; Anisotropy; Feasibility of the ruby laser scattering system.
