A new divertor (MKII-HP) has been designed to be implemented in JET as part of a possible enhancement programme of the JET facility (JET EP). The aim is to handle up to 40 MW of injected power for 10 s with plasma triangularities up to 0.5 while keeping enough flexibility for other scenarios. The divertor is shaped to optimise the wetting fraction without exposing sharp edges or metallic parts and the general design allows for high halo currents.
