A new method of in-situ relative calibration for Thomson scattering diagnostics using a double-pass scattering system is proposed. The ratio of scattered light signals between the first and second pass depends on electron temperature (Te), making it possible to evaluate Te without considering relative transmissivities. The relative transmissivities of each spectral channel can be determined at the same time. The feasibility of the method based on parameters in a JT-60SA Thomson scattering diagnostic is also examined.
