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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

WM Symposia announces STEM Champions Challenge
Waste Management Symposia (WMS), which hosts the annual Waste Management Conference in Phoenix, Ariz., is launching a new effort along with Longenecker & Associates to support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education efforts to attract and build the next-generation nuclear workforce. The engineering, environmental, and nuclear services company Spectra Tech is joining the initiative by matching Longenecker & Associates' contributions to the program.

Presented at the
International Conference on IFSA
odd years only
The Edward Teller Award recognizes pioneering research and leadership in the use of high-intensity drivers (e.g. lasers, ion-particle beams, pulsed power) to produce unique high-density matter for scientific research and to conduct investigations of inertial fusion. The award is normally presented at the International Conference on Inertial Fusion Science Applications (IFSA) during odd-numbered years. The award may be presented at an alternate location determined by the Fusion Energy Division in consultation with the ANS Honors and Awards Committee.
Nominees may be from any nation, need not be an ANS member, and must be living at the time of award selection. Nominations are open to everyone who has made significant advances in capabilities (e.g. drivers, diagnostics, targets, and numerical modeling) as well as to those who have advanced the physics of inertial fusion and applications.
The award consists of an engraved silver medal and a $2,000 monetary award. A maximum of two awards per cycle will be made. If a qualified candidate is not identified during a ballot period, the selection committee may recommend that the award not be made in that year.
The Teller Award was established in 1991 by the conference series formerly called Laser Interaction and Related Plasma Phenomenon (LIRPP). This award was officially recognized by the Fusion Energy Division in June 1999 as a Division-Administered award. It is presently fully-funded by the Fusion Energy Division of ANS.
Nominations are solicited through a bi-annual announcement in ANS publications and independent efforts of the Fusion Energy Division and through the channels of the IFSA conference.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to email@example.com.
