Tritium: Fuel of Fusion Reactors [electronic resource] / edited by Tetsuo Tanabe
- Introduction of a nuclear fusion reactor -- Characteristics of tritium -- Fuel flow and balance in a DT fusion reactor -- Burning plasma -- Behavior of fuels in reactor -- Tritium fueling system -- Tritium measurement I -- Tritium measurement II -- Permeation and Permeation Barrier -- Contamination and decontamination -- Isotope separation system (ISS) -- Evaluation method of tritium breeding ratio using neutron transport equation -- Recovery of Tritium Bred in Blanket -- Safety confinement system -- Behavior of tritium released to the environment.
- This book focuses on tritium as a fuel for fusion reactors and a next-generation energy source. Following an introduction of tritium as a hydrogen radioisotope, important issues involved in establishing safe and economical tritium fuel cycles including breeding for a fusion reactor are summarized; these include the handling of large amounts of tritium: confinement, leakage, contamination, permeation, regulation and tritium accountancy, and impacts on surrounding areas. Targeting and encouraging the students and technicians who will design and operate fusion reactors in the near future, this book offers a valuable resource on tritium science and technology.
