The kinetic energy of neutrons produced in the fusion plasma is converted in reactor components into heat. The calculated amount of nuclear heat and its distribution in the components has to be validated quantitatively. Well- established methods for heating measurements are based on the use of thermoluminescent detectors or micro-ionization chambers. These should be complemented by independent techniques of - if possible - higher sensitivity. Two such techniques have been developed at the Technical University of Dresden using scintillation detectors and a silicon microsensor. Both methods are described and results of methodical investigations are presented.
