Abstract :The latest measurement of the absorbed dose rate in air was performed at the National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) site during the period for the first deuterium plasma experiment conducted in Large Helical Device (LHD). The arithmetic mean of the absorbed dose rates in air for 222 measurement points at the NIFS site was 43 nGy h^<−1>. Very little change was observed in the distribution maps of the absorbed dose rates in air before and after the deuterium experiment in the LHD. In addition, the absorbed dose rates in air around the buildings were distributed at similar high levels before and after the deuterium experiment. A radionuclide analysis of soil and broken stone was conducted using a high-purity Ge semiconductor detector. The absorbed dose rates in air at the NIFS site were mainly defined by the radiation from the ground and the building material around the measurement points. The effect of the deuterium experiment was so small that it was undetectable in this study.
