Yields of Tritium During Fission of Nuclides of Interest in Nuclear Power Reactors
A very important problem associated with the development of commercial power reactors is the effect of their operation on the environment. An important product of the fission process which could be a serious source of environmental contamination is tritium.
In this paper a discussion will be given on the measurpment of the yield of tritium from fission of several nuclides of interest as fuels in nuclear power reactors. Some problems of measurement of the tritium yields are presented.
