In order to understand plasma transport in the edge stochastic layers, a visible spectrometer has been developed. Two-dimensional impurity emission intensity distributions in the edge stochastic layer of LHD, including divertor plate, divertor legs, X-point, and the last closed flux surface, have been measured. Carbon emission intensities and their distributions are found to be clearly different depending on the different magnetic field configuration and on the charge state. Effects of the edge magnetic field structure on these results are discussed.
