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.

Advanced reactors: Now comes the hard part
Designing a reactor is complicated but building one may be harder. Even companies that have had lots of practice haven’t always done it well. And all the power reactors in service today were built by companies that had years of experience in other kinds of big steam-electric power plants. In contrast, some of the creative new designs now moving toward commercialization come from start-ups that have never built anything at all. How should they prepare?

A filter charge exchange recombination spectroscopy (CXRS) system has been developed for the real-time measurement and feedback control of ion temperature (Ti) profiles in JT-60U. In order to improve the dynamic range and the spatial coverage, the passband of each filter used for the fast CXRS diagnostic is optimized for the target value of Ti (~0.1-20 keV), and the number of relevant channels is increased (maximum: 12 channels). Real-time processor system has also been improved using advantage of the filter CXRS method. Utilizing this filter CXRS system, real-time control of the central Ti has been demonstrated.
