The Joint European Torus (JET) is the largest tokamak experiment operating in the world. The objective of the JET experiment is to obtain and study plasmas of hydrogen isotopes in conditions and with dimensions approaching those needed for a fusion reactor. The key design features of the JET tokamak and its main components are described. These components are the vacuum vessel, the toroidal and poloidal magnetic field coils and the mechanical structure. JET results are presented and possible future developments are discussed.
