Magnetic probes for plasma diagnostics in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) were developed and tested in a fission reactor, the Japan Materials Testing Reactor. Performance of coils made of mineral insulating cables could be analyzed by a proposed equivalent electrical circuit but were disturbed by electrical drift, presumably caused by a phenomenon called radiation induced electromotive force. However, results were promising and development of an ITER-relevant magnetic probe is within view.
