about this item

This book focuses on tritium as a fuel for fusion reactors and 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 e.g. the handling of large amounts of tritium, i.e. confinement, leakage, contamination, permeation, regulation and tritium accountancy, and impacts on surrounding areas. This book, targeting and encouraging the students and technicians who will design and operate fusion reactors in the near future, offers a valuable resource on tritium science and technology.
