The current density profile diagnostics are critical for the control of the steady-state burning plasmaoperations. A multi-channel motional Stark effect (MSE) diagnostic system has been implemented forthe measurements of the internal magnetic field structures that constrain the magnetic equilibriumreconstruction to accurately produce the tokamak safety factor and current density profiles for the KoreaSuperconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR). This work presents the design and fabrication ofthe front optics and the filter modules and the calibration activities for the MSE diagnostic at KSTAR.
