ABSTRACT
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the decision on 17 October 1977 by the European Council of Ministers to proceed with the JET project. Very little thought had been given to the diagnostic requirements during the design phase—indeed many people assumed that JET would not do detailed physics studies and would need only a few basic diagnostics. Of course this view turned out to be incorrect—JET needed a comprehensive set of diagnostics and has conducted a very extensive physics programme. The large physical dimensions of JET, the radiation environment and the stringent interface standards radically changed our concept of diagnostics compared to the smaller fusion experiments that had gone before. In this paper I will review some of the experience on burning plasma diagnostics on JET.
