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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

New TRIGA fuel delivered to a U.S. university reactor for the first time in a decade
Penn State’s Radiation Science and Engineering Center (RSEC) has received the first new TRIGA fuel shipped to the United States since 2012, the university announced on September 28. The fuel reached University Park, Pa., on September 27 and is destined for RSEC’s Breazeale Reactor, the nation’s longest continuously operating university research reactor.

Energy storage systems could be integrated with nuclear power plants to increase flexibility and potentially enhance revenues. This session will cover energy storage technologies that could couple to various coolant temperatures (medium- to high-temperature) or be integral to a plant's design. Energy storage classes include, but are not limited to, electrochemical batteries, mechanical compression/liquefaction of fluids, gravitational potential energy, heat storage materials (solids, liquids, gases; single- and multi-phase fluids), and power-to-X/synfuels.
