MAGNETIC INFLUENCE ON FISSION CHAMBERS
On large tokamak devices neutron measurements are performed by means of fission chambers (FC). The detection processes of the fission chambers can be affected because of the presence of high magnetic fields (E times B drift). A study has been carried out of the magnetic field influence on the fission chamber performances. By means of a code, the drift properties of the electrons have been evaluated at different values of crossed E and B fields. The application of in-core fission chambers on large tokamak devices proves to be feasible.
