Abstract

Neutronics benchmark experiments are conducted at JET in the frame of WPJET3 NEXP within EUROfusion Consortium for validating the neutronics codes and tools used in ITER nuclear analyses to predict quantities such as the neutron flux along streaming paths and dose rates at the shutdown due to activated components. The preparation of neutron streaming and shutdown dose rate experiments for the future Deuterium-Tritium operations (DTE2 campaign) are in progress. This paper summarizes the status of measurements and analyses in progress in the current Deuterium–Deuterium (DD) campaign and the efforts in preparation for DTE2.
