31st Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Dubrovnik, Croatia, 20 - 25 September 2020

DEMO is a key part of the EU fusion roadmap, and the programme reaches the end of the pre-conceptual phase with a gate review in 2020. As part of the work to complete this phase, eight Key Design Integration Issues (KDII’s) have been identified as critical to the programme. Two of these KDII’s identified a requirement for a more detailed archit…

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

In future fusion power plants, such as DEMO, D-T neutron emission is predicted to exceed 1×1021 neutrons/second. Accurately monitoring neutron energies and intensities will be the primary method for estimating fusion power, and calculating key parameters, including the tritium breeding ratio and nuclear heating.  The Novel Neutron Det…

Analyses of radiation fields resulting from a deuterium-tritium (DT) plasma in fusion devices is a critical input to the design and validation of many aspects of the reactor design, such as shielding, material lifetime and remote maintenance requirements/scheduling. Neutronics studies are performed using radiation transport codes such as MCNP, T…
