The placement of lost alpha particle detectors in ITER has been studied using a full gyro-motion orbit calculation code, in which the orbit is located in the plasma side of the first wall boundary. Detection rates are likely to be low with the detector is placed inside the blanket. Tilting the modules so that they interfere less gives a significantly higher probability of detection.
