High Count Rate Neutron Detector Installation at JET
2011 (English)Other (Other academic)
The measurement of fusion power is of paramount importance for the control of a fusion reactor's operation. The neutron yield from the reactor is strictly related to the energy production. One of the methods employed at JET to measure the yield involves the use of the MPRu spectrometer together with the neutron camera. However the MPRu has an intrinsically low efficiency (about 10-6), which results in a poor time resolution. An improvement involving the installation of a NE213 detectorfor high count rate has been proposed. The testing phase of the new instrumentation, conducted at Uppsala University, has shown that the acquisition system works properly and it is ready to be installed on site in view of the coming JET experimental campaign.
