The behavior of the 1 MeV triton has been studied in order to understand the alpha particle confinement property in the deuterium operation of toroidal fusion devices. To obtain time evolution of the deuterium-tritium (D-T) neutron emission rate where the secondary DT neutron emission rate is approximately 1012 n/s, we designed two high detection efficiency scintillating fiber (Sci-Fi) detectors: a 1 mm-diameter scintillation fiber-based detector Sci-Fi1 and a 2 mm-diameter scintillation fiber-based detector Sci-Fi2. The test in an accelerator-based neutron generator was performed. The result shows that the directionality of each detector is 15° and 25°, respectively. It is found that detection efficiency for DT neutrons is around 0.23 counts/n cm2 for the Sci-Fi1 detector and is around 1.0 counts/n cm2 for the Sci-Fi2 detector.
