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.
Fuel Cycle & Waste Management
Devoted to all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle including waste management, worldwide. Division specific areas of interest and involvement include uranium conversion and enrichment; fuel fabrication, management (in-core and ex-core) and recycle; transportation; safeguards; high-level, low-level and mixed waste management and disposal; public policy and program management; decontamination and decommissioning environmental restoration; and excess weapons materials disposition.

The CORTEX project: Improving nuclear fleet operational availability
We often define noise as an unwanted disturbance, especially acoustic in nature. Neutron noise, by contrast, is a direct measure of the dynamics of a nuclear core. It can be used for core monitoring without disturbing plant operation and by using the existing core instrumentation. The European CORTEX project aims to develop an innovative core monitoring technique using neutron noise, while capitalizing on the latest developments in neutronic modeling, signal processing, and artificial intelligence.
Building a Stronger Voice.
Across the globe, dozens of Local sections are the backbone of ANS. They perform excellent work on behalf of nuclear professionals. All members are urged to join a Local Section or Plant Branch to build their network and to help serve the nuclear community through public education and outreach.
Find a Local Section or Plant Branch near you by using the map below.
If there isn't one near you, then learn how to start a Local Section.
ANS Local Sections allow members to interact with other members and nuclear professionals to network and learn about relevant issues in their region.
ANS Plant Branches allow members to interact with other members and nuclear professionals to network and learn about relevant issues at their plant.
To find a section, click on a state or select from the dropdowns below.
