Sasao Neutron Spectrum in a collimator - optimaization with MCNP(2) In a neutronics calculation on the model of ITER, the possibility of separating the DD component from that of the DT reaction was examined. The separation in a neutron spectrum is possible at an appropriate measurement position with a collimator 1–10 cm in diameter.

6 6/13 10th ITPA diagnostics meeting, Moscow 10-14/04/06M. Sasao High-counting-rate TOF electronics(1) Number of interesting events is only ~1/1000 of total events. Fast rejection of DT neutrons and gamma events in the D1 detector is essential. The TOF geometry defines the energy loss (pulse height) of DD neutrons in the D1 detector. We propose fast selection of interesting events by pulse height discrimination.

12 12/13 10th ITPA diagnostics meeting, Moscow 10-14/04/06M. Sasao Future work and Summary (1) In a neutronics calculation on the model of ITER, the possibility of separating the DD component from that of the DT reaction was examined. The separation in a neutron spectrum is possible at an appropriate measurement position with a collimator 1–10 cm in diameter and a spectrometer with energy resolution better than 0.5 MeV. The optimization TOF spectrometer design is on going using MCNP calculationfor both high detection efficiency for interesting events (2- 3 MeV) and the energy resolution. High detection capability with 0.5 MeV energy resolution can be realized with a single D2 detector. We proposed a high counting rate TOF electronics using fast selection of interesting events by fast pulse height discrimination (<10 ns). FNS experiment showed the POP of the high counting rate TOF electronics.

13 13/13 10th ITPA diagnostics meeting, Moscow 10-14/04/06M. Sasao Future work and Summary (2) After changing the PMT of D1, the experiment will be repeated. The experiment with a full size D2 detector is scheduled. In order to have larger dynamic range, multi-layer D1 detecors, and multi D2 detectors are necessary. The measurement with present machines is desired.
