    Abstract

    The tritium breeding blanket is an essential part of a future DT fusion power reactor. Test Blanket Modules (TBM) will be installed in the experimental reactor ITER with the aim to investigate the nuclear performance of different designs. Currently there is no qualified neutronics instrumentation for the TBMs which is able to withstand the harsh environment conditions such as high temperature and, depending on the operation scenario, intense radiation.
