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 was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

Fundamental to the successful operation of any nuclear site is a first-class safety culture that strives to continually improve in response to good industry practices and operating experience feedback. The first speaker will provide insight on some critical experiment accidents at Los Alamos in the 1940s, particularly with regards to how the lessons learned are equally applicable to nuclear criticality safety practices in the modern era. This will be followed by an informal panel discussion on other lessons learned over the past few decades, including an opportunity for audience questions.
