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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

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.

Countdown to 2030 - Framing the Nuclear Technology Agenda for the Next 10 Years
Online Virtual Meeting
Thank you for registering for our 2020 ANS Virtual Annual Meeting! We genuinely appreciate the support you and your organization have shown ANS and the nuclear science and technology community during this unprecedented time.
We know. There is no substitute for real, in-the-flesh energy of fellowship an ANS meeting offers. However, we are committed to enabling the most robust technical exchange and insightful strategic dialogue possible with the virtual tools we have at our disposal. Remember, registration gives you full on-demand access to meeting content shortly after its conclusion, so take full advantage of the content in our plenaries and technical sessions.
The countdown to 2030 is on!
See you soon.
