Description

JET (Joint European Torus) is a large tokamak DT mixture operated at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) by the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and coordinated by the Eurofusion Consortium. In 1997, JET achieved 16 MW of of fusion power using deuterium-tritium fuel with efficiency (Q) of 0.67.
