Abstract

A novel Shutdown dose rate benchmark experiment has been performed at Joint European Torus (JET) machine during the last high performance Deuterium-Deuterium (DD) campaign in preparation of future high Deuterium Tritium experiment (DTE2). On-line continuous gamma dose rate measurements were performed for four months at two ITER relevant ex-vessel positions close to Radial Neutron Camera and on the top of ITER-like Antenna using high-sensitive ionization chambers. Decay gamma spectra at the shutdown were also collected using High Purity Germanium spectrometer to identify dominant radionuclides contributing to the dose. Neutron fluence measurements during operations were performed as well using activation foils assembly installed close to ionization chambers. The measurements are performed to validate shutdown dose rate tools used in ITER. This paper presents the experimental assembly and measurements analyses.
