Abstract

In the perspective of reducing ITER risks, JET next DT campaign presents a unique potential, since the device can combine the right first wall material mix, the reactor fuel mixture and sufficient dimensions and fields to confine the alpha particles. An integrated diagnostic programme, to maximize the scientific output of this DT campaign, is under way and concentrates mainly on the diagnostic for the fusion products, on advanced measurements for instabilities and on testing diagnostic technologies in a 14 MeV neutron environment.
