The TRIO experiment involves the irradiation of γ-LiAlO2under well defined conditions of temperature, neutron flux, sweep gas flow, and solid configuration. Tritium in its various chemical forms is moved by a sweep gas to an analytical train that measures and identifies the composition of the effluent. The predominant form of tritium observed in the sweep gas was the noncondensable, or HT form. At the completion of the experiment less than 0.1 wppm tritium was found in the solid. © 1985.
