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.

Japanese gangster charged with trafficking nuclear materials
U.S. officials have brought charges of nuclear materials trafficking against a Japanese gangster who has been in federal custody since 2022.
In a case filled with international espionage, along with alleged weapons and drug trafficking, Takeshi Ebisawa has been charged with attempting to sell uranium and weapons-grade plutonium. The 60-year-old Japanese national—who is believed to be a leading figure in the Yakuza, the Japanese organized crime syndicate—faces a long list of federal charges that carry sentence of life in prison.
13th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control & Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2023)
Tuesday, July 18, 2023|3:15–5:00PM EDT|Rotunda
The Department of Energy Light Water Reactor Sustainability Program Plant Modernization Pathway has been focused on cost effective, technology enabled, transformational change to extend existing nuclear plant lifetimes to 80-100 years. This discussion will provide the HMIT/NPIC community with insights into how LWRS methods and research results not only impact legacy nuclear plant plant designs and concepts of operation but can also be leveraged and coordinated in such a way as to simultaneously support new plant design and eventual operation in a mixed plant environment.
