Abstract

Neutron monitoring is quite important because fusion neutrons are a direct evidence of fusion reactions. In calibration experiments of a neutron monitoring system, Monte Carlo calculations play an important role to correct various effects. To perform Monte Carlo calculations for a helical type fusion device, we make a program that can automatically generate an input file of a helical coil geometry for the MCNP code. The neutron spatial distributions and spectra for the helical devices are calculated in the geometries automatically generated by this program. We also discuss in calibration experiments.
