Understanding the effects of neutron irradiation of materials is one of the outstanding issues in the development of fusion technologies. The impact of this work derives from the opportunity, for the first time in a tokamak operating with a D-T plasma, to deliver experimental results which directly link to the nuclear characteristics of real sam…

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, TRIP…
