JET Antenna upgrade nears installation

A decade after making an in-vessel, Tritium-containing, antenna for ECE and reflectometer measurements on the JET Tokomak, TK has been making  new front optics, which will allow a different area of the plasma to be probed.

Designed on our PRO/E Creo Gaussian-beam enabled CAD system, TK's 3D printer was used to check the general configuration of the part.

Manufacture - including some tricky spark erosion -  is now complete and we expect installation will occur before the end of 2014
