The electron cyclotron emission (ECE) diagnostic is a well established and robust instrument for the measurement of the electron temperature Te. However, the conventional interpretation of ECE measurements is inaccurate near the plasma edge, for Te > 7 keV, and for plasmas with fast electron populations. It will be shown that these limitations can be overcome if the electron cyclotron radiation transport is integrated in the analysis of the ECE measurements. For hot plasmas the accuracy of the radiation transport model could be greatly improved, by extending the model with a fully relativistic absorption coefficient, where the dispersion of the plasma is considered in the cold plasma limit. Furthermore, the model allows the ECE by fast electrons to be estimated. Moreover, models predicting the formation of fast electron populations will be compared with experimental observations.
