A single-chord FIR polarimeter (λ=118.8μm) has been mounted on RFXand is now under test. The purpose of the diagnostic is to ascertain the feasibility of measuring a Faraday rotation effect n the RFX plasma and to discover what requirements are necessary for a future six-chord diagnostic. The diagnostic should measure small Faraday rotation angles (of the order of a few degrees) and the required resolution is of ±0.2 . The tests carried out reveal various sources of disturbance: electrical disturbances in the signals vibration effects on the optical components, detector noise and perturbations on the laser system
