The paper describes the design of elerctrostatic probe diagnostic system for plasmatron VISIONI installed at SCK-CEN. The results of validation of this system are presented, it is demonstrated that diagnostics performs reasonably well. First results of the studies of deuterium retention in tungsten-tantalum alloy performed at this facility, are presented as well.
