ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

Public support for nuclear energy is highest among plant neighbors
Ninety-one percent of residents living near U.S. nuclear power plants have a favorable impression of those plants, according to Bisconti Research’s ninth biennial survey. In addition, 88 percent of those residents have positive opinions of nuclear energy in general, and 78 percent would support the addition of a new reactor at their neighboring plant—a number that increases to 86 percent if the new reactor is a small modular reactor.
Edward L. Quinn has been an ANS member since 1984. He is active in the Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology, Human Factors Instrumentation & Controls and Operations & Power Divisions.
He is the president of Technology Resources and has over 35 years experience in managing nuclear and fossil utility contracts, as well as expertise in personnel in support of both project and supplemental assignments at various utilities in the U.S.
He has managed and performed projects in licensing and compliance, electrical and controls design, and start-up and operation, including standards development for the Instrument Society of America (ISA) and the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC). Quinn is also the author of over 50 papers and presentations on nuclear instrumentation and control subjects.
His other experience includes instructor at the MIT Summer Reactor Safety Course for over 15 years and is a board member of the nuclear engineering programs at Oregon State University and Ohio State University.
Quinn currently provides the licensing support for the eight awarded Invensys Operations Management (IOM) nuclear projects in China. In 2009, he was awarded the 1906 Award for the Development of Standards, the highest award in IEC. Two years later, he received the ANS Walter Zinn Award, named after the first President of ANS.
His educational background includes a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Tufts University, Medford, MA, and a Masters in Management from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. Quinn experience also includes Naval Nuclear Qualified Shift Test Engineer (NAVSEA 08).
