In the ITER tokamak, diagnosing the plasma neutron emission will be essential to characterise fusion burning process and determine the performance of the machine. JET, currently the world largest tokamak, is the most suitable test bed for development of the fusion-relevant neutron diagnostics due to its plasma parameters and unique tritium operation capability. Current works aim at improving the spatial and spectral characteristics of the neutron measurements at JET, as well as on technological tasks. The present enhancements of neutron diagnostics and data analyses at JET make-together with new fast particle measuring techniques and tritium retention studies-part of the "burning plasma" diagnostic developments towards reactor-grade fusion facilities. © Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic 2006.
