Abstract

The primary objective of the Joint European Torus (JET) is to obtain and study a plasma in conditions and with dimensions approaching those needed in fusion reactor. To learn how to control and optimize the operation of JET in order to be able to approach the desired plasma conditions will require an extensive experimental programme and this will need an effective and comprehensive set of diagnostics. JET is a collaborative experiment within the Euratom Fusion Programme, and most of the European Fusion Laboratories are now engaged in designing and constructing diagnostic systems for JET. The large dimensions and hostile radiation environment of JET are among the many new problems which have been encountered in specifying and designing the diagnostic systems which will be used on JET.
