We study the radiation environment in MITICA, the prototype of the ITER neutral beam injector, during deuterium operation. ITER is a scientific challenge: one of the several critical issues to solve is the compatibility to ionizing radiation of diagnostics components placed near the plasma vessel. In fact, non negligible fluxes of neutrons and photons are expected from deuterium-deuterium reactions, also from a major peripheral component such as the Neutral Beam Injector. After evaluating the… CONTINUE READING
