Abstract

The Joint European Torus (JET) fusion machine is the only device capable of operation with tritium and Be, what makes it best suited to study ITER relevant issues. A large variety of activities are performed within the JET Fusion Technology Task Force. In this paper, some topics such as erosion/deposition & material transport, flakes characterization and detritiation techniques are highlighted. Recent results obtained using a pumping cryopanel and on plasma facing component characterisation are given. Finally, issues that will be addressed in the forthcoming JET work-programme are presented, such as a beryllium main wall for JET and in-situ laser detritiation.
