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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

BWXT to demonstrate TRISO fuel line operations under contract extension
BWX Technologies announced on January 24 that it has been awarded a $4.9 million contract amendment to produce TRISO fuel particles using natural uranium and to demonstrate performance under a defined production schedule. BWXT’s Nuclear Operations Group will perform the work at BWXT’s Lynchburg, Va., facility, where TRISO production was restarted in November 2020. The contract amendment was awarded by Battelle Energy Alliance, which manages Idaho National Laboratory on behalf of the Department of Energy.

Two kinds of magnetohydrodynamics instability are observed in electron cyclotron heating and neutral beam injection-heated Heliotron J plasmas. One is the pressure-driven interchange modes with m = 2/n = 1 and m = 5/n = 3 and low frequency (fexp < 20 kHz), which are observed in the plasma with a rational surface of /2 = 0.5 or 0.65. The other is the energetic ion-driven global Alfvén eigenmodes (GAEs) in the Alfvén frequency range. To identify the observed GAEs, the frequency of the observed mode with shear Alfvén spectra calculated by CAS3D3 is compared. The interchange mode with m = 5/n = 3 and bursting GAE with intense magnetic fluctuations may affect the bulk plasma confinement and energetic ion transport, respectively.
