The divertor component is subject to some of the most extreme loading conditions in a fusion environment and the safety design window is relatively narrow. Variation in mechanical properties of the same material throughout a component is common place in practice and can be caused by both local effects of processing and joining, and local variati…

Dimensionless identity experiments test the invariance of plasma physics to changes in the dimensional plasma parameters, e.g. ne and Te, when the dimensionless parameters are conserved [1] [2]. However, conditions at the plasma boundary, such as influx of neutral particles, may introduce additional physics. An isotope identity experiment was ca…

As part of the preparation for the second JET DT campaign (DTE2), a series of isotope control experiments in H/D mixtures [1] have shown that NBI fuelling species has only a weak effect on the core isotope composition, which remains determined by the edge H/D ratio and therefore by the injected gas.

The initial Ohmic current ramp phase of JET hybrid plasmas, including a current ‘overshoot’ before the main heating, is used to optimise the q-profile shape to allow access to high β and avoid MHD instabilities [1]. Such hybrid plasmas have never been operated using tritium (T) or mixed deuterium-tritium (D-T) fuel. However, experiments with i…

The dependence of JET neutron deficit and energy balance on neutral beam (PINI) selection has been investigated experimentally. The discrepancy between neutrons predicted and measured during JET pulses has consistently deviated, with the measured neutrons typically being lower than expected by simulation. A number of investigations into this hav…
