- The production of radionuclides by neutron reactions in the building air of a conceptual Tokamak Engineering Test Facility has been calculated. The short-lived radionuclides /sup 13/N, /sup 16/N and /sup 41/Ar are all found to greatly exceed their maximum permissable concentration values. Longer-lived radionuclides /sup 3/H, /sup 14/C and /sup 39/Ar are also found to be produced in significant concentrations. The present results are compared with values calculated for three other fusion devices; TFTR, INS, and FMIT. These comparisons show that the ETF can be a prolific producer of activated air.
