Abstract

Abstract The importance of sequential (x,n) reactions on element activation in fusion reactors is demonstrated by a few examples (Na, Mg, V, Cr) studied recently. It is shown that the time-dependent total element activity in some cases is strongly governed by contributions from such reactions at least for light and medium-weight elements and cooling times above more than 1 year.
