Neutron transport analysis for in-vessel diagnostics in ITER

Ishikawa, Masao; Kondoh, Takashi; Nishitani, Takeo; Kawano, Yasunori; Kusama, Yoshinori

Neutron transport analysis is very important for design and optimization of diagnostics in ITER. Especially, in-vessel diagnostics are exposed to strong neutron and $$gamma$$ radiation and then it could lead to damage and temperature increase due to nuclear heating of the components of those diagnostics. High dose rate due to strong radiation also makes those maintenances difficult. Therefore, evaluation of neutron/$$gamma$$ flux, spectrum and nuclear heating at the location of the diagnostics with neutron transport analysis are essential to design a neutron radiation shield system and/or a cooling system. In this paper, results of neutron transport analysis applied to in-vessel components of the microfission chamber (MFC) and the poloidal polarimeter, which are developed by Japan Atomic Energy Agency, are presented.
