AMS with tritium is a method able to detect even very small nuclear releases. It was applied in this work to monitor the tritium concentration at nuclear power plants (CANDU-type) and at nuclear fuel reprocessing plants and to diagnose fusion experiments. Two different depth profiling measuring procedures are presented. AMS measurements of the tritium, created in D-D fusion reactions offered detailed information about the spatial distribution of Triton fluxes to the vessel wall of a Tokamak, about the plasma confinement and about the interaction of the heating neutral deuterium beam with the confined and rotating plasma.
