The Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI)/U.S. Department of Energy collaborative program was performed using the Fusion Neutronics Source facility at JAERI. In Phase III of this program, tritium breeding measurements were conducted in prototypical blankets driven by a simulated deuterium-tritium neutron line source. This phase differed from the earlier two phases in respect to the spatial distribution of the source as the earlier experiments were done with a point neutron source. This series basically consisted of an annular test blanket and a pseudoline source to investigate the effect of source spread on the neutronic performance. A concise description is on the outlines of the simulated line source, the test blanket systems for Phases-IIIA, -IIIB, and -IIIC, measured items, experimental results, and their analyses.
