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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

Finland in Front: The World’s Likely First Spent Fuel Repository Moves Toward Licensing
The year 2024 is shaping up to be a historic one for Posiva, the waste management organization owned by Finland’s two nuclear power plant utilities, Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima. The company is looking to receive regulatory approval of its operating license for the Onkalo deep geological repository for high-level radioactive waste by the end of the year.

Amid continued supply chain issues and economic downturns, a post-pandemic Europe is facing a brutal wintertime energy crisis spurred by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, nuclear phaseouts in Germany and elsewhere, France’s grid troubles, and the loss of Russian gas imports for heating and electricity. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, ANS activated its Rapid Response Taskforce and recruited members and other experts on reactor safety and radiation protection to help provide clear and accurate information to members of the media and the public. Now nearly nine months into Russia’s long war against a Western-supplied Ukraine, winter is here for an energy-crunched Europe – what does that mean for nuclear energy, safety, and communications? What lessons can be learned to help ride out this perfect storm of war, short-sighted energy policies, economic troubles, and freezing temperatures? Are we facing a new world for energy policymaking and how will Europe and the rest of the world fare this winter?
