    This experiment aimed at studying a technique to measure the leakage of charged particles from a fusion plasma. The activity induced in samples of various materials placed on a special holder inside a Tokamak was measured using ultra low-level g-ray spectrometry (ULGS) performed in three underground laboratories. In total, 27 radionuclides were detected in this experiment. Seven of these radionuclides were mainly produced by proton interactions. For two of them it was possible to determine their angular distribution
