A crucial issue for the design of HCLL (Helium Cooled Lead Lithium) Test Blanket Module of ITER and HCLL, WCLL, DCLL Breeder Blanket of DEMO is to efficiently characterise the tritium inventory inside the blanket and the permeation of tritium into the coolant in order to reduce as much as possible the radiological hazard towards the external environment. A fast and reliable sensor is required both for tritium management at the several steps of the reactor fuel cycle and for the development of tritium processing systems, e.g. the TES (Tritium Extraction System).
