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.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Art exhibit visits IIT
Nuclear power plant cooling towers are easily recognizable for their familiar hyperboloid shape. But an art exhibit running at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago aims to give visitors a different perspective.
The Art of the Reactor, an exhibit by the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and hosted by IIT’s Lewis College of Science and Letters, opened on November 4 and runs until Sunday, December 4 at Hermann Hall on the IIT campus.

Panelists will present the experimental capabilities of test facilities that can be used to support the development of new reactor concepts and designs. These facilities will have the ability to generate high-quality data that can be used for system and computational fluid dynamic code validation. Such data can support safety analyses and reduce uncertainty, especially for thermal hydraulic phenomena of interest, enhance our technical understanding, and fill in technical gaps. The panelists will also provide information on the current status and on future testing that is being planned.
The presentations include:
Thermal Hydraulic Testing Facilities for Lead Fast Reactor Development;
Developing Nuclear Technology through Design-Build-Test;
High Pressure/High Temperature Helium Flow Test Facility at City College of New York; and
Combined Positron Emission Particle Tracking/CT Experimental Capabilities for Nuclear Engineering Applications.
