Contamination and Waste / Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Tritium Science and Technology
The integration of laser techniques in an embedded system is studied in this paper to propose system able to perform tritium inventory (with in-line and on-line methods) and tritium removal (by ablation of layers or by tritium desorption) in a tokamak. Two complementary embedded systems are currently studied: a first innovative system which can be used between two plasma sessions (without tokamak pressure and temperature breaks) and a second system which can be used during maintenance phases (at atmospheric pressure). The two systems will be presented in this paper with their advantages and disadvantages.
