Abstract
The prediction of the tritium production is required for handling procedures of samples, safety-maintenance and licensing of the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF). Here, we have addressed an uncertainty analysis to draw conclusions on the reliability of the tritium prediction under the potential impact of activation cross section uncertainties. We conclude that there is not sufficient experimental validation of the evaluated tritium production cross sections, especially for iron and sodium. Therefore a dedicated experimental validation program for those elements should be desirable.
