The International Tokamak Physics Activity (ITPA) Topical Group (TG) on Diagnostics has been conducting R&D activities to support improved ITER diagnostic performance. Highlights of the Topical Group activity focus on: (1) mitigating degradation of first mirrors in optical systems, development of techniques for removing impurity deposition on mirrors; (2) characterization of in-vessel stray-light to reduce impact on diagnostics; (3) diagnostics of escaping alpha particles, feasibility tests of the activation probe method under a multi machine joint experiment; (4) studies of real time diagnostics, measurement of surface temperature of in-vessel components using infrared thermography.
