6. Evaluation of semi-conductor radiation detectors for the application in fusion reactor operation

Instructors Dr. Makoto I. Kobayashi

Because the fusion reactor involves wide ranges of temperature, pressure and radiation fields, the appropriate monitors need to be selected. For example, the single crystal diamond detector will be used as the D-T fusion reaction monitor, and the germanium semi-conductor detector will be used for radiation control. In our institute, the operation and development of these radiation monitors are conducting.
In this class, we will perform the radiation measurements with using these detectors and radiation transport calculation to study the principle of radiation detection and the evaluation of detector performance.
