A review of high resolution - spectroscopy applied to 9Be(, n)12C reaction with the aim of hot plasma diagnostic is presented. In this review a historic genesis of the concept, a brief overview of relevant theory, different approaches and essential effects are discussed. Abilities to extract information on fast -particles distribution function are demonstrated. Developed technique was applied for analysis of the largest in the world tokamak JET data.
