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.

Wanted: Information leading to a neutron source for fusion energy R&D
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science published a notice in the March 27 Federal Register calling for input on technological approaches to a Fusion Prototypic Neutron Source (FPNS) for materials irradiation research under DOE-SC’s Fusion Energy Sciences program, as well as partnership models that could accelerate the construction and delivery of the facility. The request for information (RFI) calls for responses by May 11.

This panel is one in a series of panel discussions sponsored by ANS's Risk-Informed, Performance-Based Principles and Policy Committee on incorporation of RIPB principles into ANS standards. This panel will include a report on RP3C's development of a Guidance Document aimed at standards developers to help incorporate RIPB principles into their standards, (tentatively) a presentation on the current status of a standard under development, a discussion of Southern Company's use of the "affirmative safety case" concept in their approach to non-LWR licensing basis development, and a brief presentation on ANS's newly constituted "Advanced Reactor Working Group."
