Plasma Event TRiggering for Alarms (PETRA) is a flexible new system at JET for detecting plasma events to trigger exception handling responses. It provides a platform for all existing and new techniques which involve processing JET real-time data to identify when to change the trajectory of a plasma shot, and reduces the technical cost and risk in …

How the Archean felsic crust grew from its mafic precursors between 3.8 and 2.5 billion years ago remains elusive and the subject of great debate. Here, we present silicon isotopic constraints on Tonalite-Trondhjemite-Granodiorite (TTG) and Granite-Monzonite-Syenite (GMS) plutons from the Kaapvaal craton, which range in age from 3.55 to 2.69 Ga.…

The JET tokamak is unique amongst present fusion devices in its capability to operate at high plasma current, providing the closest plasma parameters to ITER. The physics benefits of high current operation have to be balanced against the risks to the integrity of the machine due to high force disruptions. The installation of the ITER-Like Wall (ILW…

Arcs are the potentially most dangerous events related to Lower Hybrid (LH) antenna operation. If left uncontrolled they can produce damage and cause plasma disruption by impurity influx. To address this issue an arc real time control and protection imaging system for the Joint European Torus (JET) LH antenna has been implemented. The LH system is …


The installation of international thermonuclear experimental reactor-relevant materials for the plasma facing components (PFCs) in the Joint European Torus (JET) is expected to have a strong impact on the operation and protection of the experiment. In particular, the use of all-beryllium tiles, which deteriorate at a substantially lower temperature…
