Description: In late 1993 the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor began operating with a deuterium-tritium (DT) fuel mixture instead of the pure deuterium which it had used previously. The major portion of this tritium has initially entered the torus as energetic neutral beam particles. Over 600 deuterium-tritium discharges have now been studied with the aid of more than 2000 tritium ion source shots. The maximum total neutral particle power injected with a mix of deuterium and tritium beams has been 39.6 megawatts, and the maximum injected as tritium neutrals has been 24.3 megawatts. Tritium neutral beam operation has become routine during this time.
