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.

Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

The charge-transfer cross sections of H+ ions in collisions with C3H4,C3H6,C4H10 and their isomers have been measured in the energy range of 0.2 to 4 keV. They are compared with the recommended or predicted values by Janev et al. Most of the present data, except for those of C3H4 targets, are found to decrease with increasing the collision energy. This feature indicates that vibrational excited states of the target molecular ions produced after charge transfer might have resulted in creation of near or accidental resonant reaction channels. Based on this view point, a new empirical scaling relation is derived.
