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.
Isotopes & Radiation
Members are devoted to applying nuclear science and engineering technologies involving isotopes, radiation applications, and associated equipment in scientific research, development, and industrial processes. Their interests lie primarily in education, industrial uses, biology, medicine, and health physics. Division committees include Analytical Applications of Isotopes and Radiation, Biology and Medicine, Radiation Applications, Radiation Sources and Detection, and Thermal Power Sources.

Nuclear Technology searches for a new technical editor
At the recent ANS Annual Meeting, Andrew Klein, the current editor of ANS’s journal Nuclear Technology, announced his retirement at the end of his term in June 2023. ANS is looking for qualified members who are interested in becoming the next technical editor of the journal. The selected person will be appointed “editor-designate” and will work with Dr. Klein for a period of time before taking over the full editor’s role.
Klein, professor emeritus at Oregon State University and past ANS president, took over the duties of technical editor in 2015, a few years before his term as ANS president. During his tenure as editor, Dr. Klein has raised NT ’s reputation for technical excellence and arranged a schedule of twelve issues annually covering the most important topics in nuclear technology.

The rapid progress towards the commercial development of space has significantly changed the landscape for the deployment of space nuclear technologies. Where space nuclear power was once the nearly exclusive domain of the Department of Energy and NASA, there is now a commercially driven demand for space nuclear technologies to support private space exploration missions and in-situ resource utilization efforts. In parallel, private companies (both start-ups and long-established reactor vendors) are emerging to meet this demand. This panel will examine the exciting new world of commercial space nuclear technology development. Alan Boyle, contributing editor to GeekWire, will moderate a round table discussion on opportunities for space nuclear power technologies in the context of commercial space development.
Each of the panelists will start with a brief talk about their perspective on space nuclear technologies, followed by a discussion led by the moderator. Finally, the panel will take questions from the audience.
