Title: Status of efforts on fundamental and applied studies with tritium at RFNC-VNIIEF

This paper gives an overview of the efforts in the field of fundamental and applied physics with tritium carried out with the participation of RFNC-VNIIEF in 2007-2013. New physical results in the study of muon-catalyzed fusion and neutron-excess nuclei are presented; a project of a new experiment on searching for a magnetic moment of the neutrino using a tritium source and helium detector is discussed. The description of a tritium support test-bed for a plasma focus-type neutron source with intensity of 10{sup 13} s{sup -1} is given. Results of studies in the area of interaction of hydrogen isotopes with structural materials such as nickel, stainless steels, high-strength austenitic alloys and alumina-based ceramics are summarized.
