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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

NCSU’s advanced research reactor study to be funded by state
North Carolina’s fiscal year 2024 budget for the state has allocated $3 million for North Carolina State University, in Raleigh, to conduct a study to assess the feasibility for the establishment of an advanced nuclear research reactor.

The purpose of the MARVEL project is to develop, in less than 2 years, a nuclear microreactor applications test bed at INL to perform research and development on various operational features of microreactors to ultimately improve integration of microreactors to end-user applications. Through collaboration between the DOE Microreactor Program and the National Reactor Innovation Center (NRIC), the development of this test bed provides an opportunity to establish and exercise key NRIC capabilities that support future reactor demonstrations by: (1) providing an early-stage platform for potential end users of microreactor systems, (2) deploying the first small-scale R&D reactor in 40 years to support new capability development, (3) facilitating outreach activity with stakeholders interested in novel nuclear energy applications (e.g., hydrogen production, process heating, water purifications), and (4) investigating and addressing issues relating to fabrication, assembly, rapid installation, deployment, and operation of microreactors. The panel will provide an overview of the MARVEL from the perspective of key contributors and stakeholders.
