A pseudo-line D-T neutron source has been developed with new experimental techniques. This line source was applied in
sophisticated neutronics experiments for an annularblanket arrangement simulating the tokamak geometry, as a new series
in the JAERI/USDOE collaborative experimental program on fusion neutronics. The source characteristics of the present
line source and the measurements for an annularassemblyare described. The discussionon the experimental results focuses
on the tritium production rate measured in an annularblanket and comparisons were made with the previous point source
experiment, and also between the annular blankets with and without an armor reflector of graphite.
