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.

Type One Energy wants to build a stellarator at retired coal plant
Type One Energy Group announced plans on February 21 to relocate its headquarters from Madison, Wis., to the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) Bull Run fossil plant in Clinton, Tenn., where it will build a stellarator fusion prototype machine. According to the company, the construction of the stellarator—called Infinity One—could begin in 2025, if necessary environmental reviews, partnership agreements, permits, and operating licenses are all in hand.

People often ask, “what about the waste?” U.S. nuclear fuel cycle and waste policy has been stuck in “Groundhog Day” mode for 13 years. However, if one looks closely, there are small signs of life: advanced reactor developers and other companies engaging with NRC on licensing pathways for nuclear fuel recycling; commercial interest in deep borehole disposal; a looming license for a private interim storage facility in New Mexico; the U.S. Department of Energy’s well-funded program to explore consent-based siting of interim storage facilities; and ANS’s recently released report recommending a new generic standard for disposal of used fuel and high-level radioactive waste. Does activity equate to progress? Are we turning the corner? Join us to find out.
