The Laser-Injected Trace Elements (LITE = KZ3) System or as popularly known, the Laser Blow-Off system, authorised by the Technical Project Board in October 1986, started operating in June 1988. As it relies for data acquisition and analysis on several other JET diagnostics, it is appropriate to provide a guide to it from the technical point of view, to indicate its potential by collating data from analogous systems on other tokamaks and to report on its first results. Laser blow-off systems have been used in a large number of tokamaks, starting with ATC in 1974 and including PLT, PDX, DITE, Alcator A, Alcator C, JPPTII, TFR, ASDEX, TFTR, DII, DIII, Doublet, Ormak, ISX-A, ISX-B, FT and DIVA. The utility of LITE systems to diagnose plasmas is well established.
