NEUTRON DETECTION TECHNIQUES FOR PLASMA DIAGNOSTICS
A survey is made of those neutron detection techniques which may be utilized for measuring the intensities and energy distributions of neutrons emitted from hot plasmas containing deuterium and/or tritium ions. The presentation includes a discussion of the physical principles on which the detection methods are based and highlights some of their strengths and weaknesses for a fusion environment; it does not, however, cover the detailed design of instrumentation for fusion devices. For orientation purposes, the tokamak device is frequently referred to as the prototypical source of neutrons.
