 Abstract: Though helium plasmas are one option for the low activation phase of ITER, little effort has thus far been devoted to studying them in a large, diverted tokamak. A recent campaign on JET has therefore sought to address some of the important questions related to helium operation (He concentrations near 90%) in single null configuruations, particularly with regard to edge and divertor physics. This contribution compiles a selection of results from these experiments, in which, in each case, discharges have been chosen to match as closely as possible previous, well characterised D plasmas in both L and ELMing H-modes. These matched pulses are used to draw conclusions regarding the principle source and location of carbon production in D plasmas, to compare and contrast the mechanisms of the density limit and the detachment process in D and He, to investigate the nature of cross-field power transport in the SOL and to gain insight into the process by which ELM energy is transported to the divertor targets.
