The neutron camera is a well-established detector system at JET, it has 19 sightlines each equipped with a liquid scintillator. The system measures a profile of the neutron emission from the plasma. Measurement data together with simulations of the detector response can be used to estimate the total neutron yield, which directly relates to the amount of fusion reactions in the plasma. My work covers data reduction, light yield calibrations, and simulations of the detector response and the neutron emissivity profile. The final DD neutron yield estimates are then compared to an estimate from another JET diagnostic.
