The JET tokamak is currently the worlds largest nuclear fusion energy research device, and is the also the only one currently operating with the capability for the DT fusion reaction that will power future fusion reactors. Diagnosis of a fusion plasma requires many different techniques and presents many different challenges. An overview of the JET project will be presented together with an introduction to some the diagnostics used to probe and measure the JET plasma. Also the role JET is now playing in the development of the next step device, ITER, will be addressed.
Lecture starts at 6.30pm with coffee served from 6.00pm.
