Within the framework of the ITER Task T-218 entitled `Shielding Blanket Neutronics Experiments', nuclear
heating measurements were conducted jointly by the USA and Japan using a micro calorimetric technique in a
graphite-cantered assembly. An accelerator-based D­T neutron source at JAERI was used to provide a mixed
neutron and photon field. The first measurements related to direct micro calorimetric measurements in individual
