At the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), a neutron activation system is foreseen to measure neutron fluence on the first wall and to evaluate total fusion power from ITER plasma. This system utilizes the method of counting gamma radiation from the metal sample irradiated by the neutron flux at the irradiation end located near the plasma. Evaluation of the operational radioactivity of the sample, which has been induced during ITER operation, is necessary in order to determine sample material, mass, and the appropriate irradiation time. Neutronic calculations are performed to evaluate operational activity of the sample. Activation of the sample is calculated according to the irradiation time for various sample materials such as Si, Al, Ti, Fe, Nb, and Cu and by assuming that the samples are irradiated at the midplane inboard region where the neutron flux is one of the strongest.
