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.

TVA gives up construction permits for Bellefonte units
The on-again, off-again plan for an operating Bellefonte nuclear power plant would appear to be off for good.
Nearly 47 years after being issued construction permits for two reactors at the Bellefonte site in northeast Alabama, the Tennessee Valley Authority has decided against renewing them, essentially extinguishing any remaining hope for the project, on which the utility has reportedly spent more than $5 billion.

View Profile for Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Madalynn Miller (ORNL)
Edward Chen (NC State Univ.)
Andy Rivas (NCSU)
Oak Ridge National Laboratory addresses compelling challenges in delivering carbon-free fusion and fission energy systems. The lab traces its roots to the X-10 Graphite Reactor, the world’s first continuously operated nuclear reactor, and to early innovations in fusion research and engineering.
ORNL has unique facilities for materials research and high performance computing that support our scientists and engineers in addressing challenges such as extended operations of the current US nuclear reactor fleet; investigating economical and flexible advanced reactor systems; and making fusion energy a viable power source.
ORNL also leads US ITER, which is responsible for designing, fabricating, and delivering hardware systems for the international ITER fusion project that will demonstrate 500 MW of fusion power. The directorate also leads the Transformational Challenge Reactor program, which leverages advanced manufacturing for rapid and economical deployment of nuclear technologies, and the Material Plasma Exposure eXperiment (MPEX), a future world-leading capability that will produce the extreme plasma environments to test materials for use in fusion energy devices.
