Abstract

The Joint European Torus (JET) is the largest single project of the coordinated nuclear fusion research programme of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) aimed at proving the feasibility of nuclear fusion as a new energy source. The experiment uses the Tokamak magnetic field configuration and is to achieve a greater potential than all other projects of this type. Successful completion of the JET programme is to provide information on the fusion reactor potential of the Tokamak system. This nicely appointed brochure with many colour photographs is intended for the public and provides a survey over all aspects of JET: The JET project (diagram of the Tokamak, tokamak magnetic field configuration); machine construction; machine components (machine octant assembly, vacuum vessel, toroidal and poloidal field spools, mechanical structure, magnetic circuit); JET power supplies (incoming power supply, toroidal and poloidal field power supplies, flywheel generators); additional heating (neutral injection heating, radio frequency heating); control room; remote handling; JET buildings; the scientific programme; JET diagnostics; JET theory; JET organization and involvement of industry; and: the principle of nuclear fusion.
