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.
Isotopes & Radiation
Members are devoted to applying nuclear science and engineering technologies involving isotopes, radiation applications, and associated equipment in scientific research, development, and industrial processes. Their interests lie primarily in education, industrial uses, biology, medicine, and health physics. Division committees include Analytical Applications of Isotopes and Radiation, Biology and Medicine, Radiation Applications, Radiation Sources and Detection, and Thermal Power Sources.

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.

This paper deals with the experimental result that is obtained from the GAMMA 10 and Kobe Cusp direct energy conversion (DEC) experiment system in the Tsukuba-Kobe university internet connected remote participation system. A DSO (Digital Sampling Oscilloscope), a PCMCIA based A/D converter and a PC (Personal Computer) server as the controller and the data storage server are used as a simulation experiment of Data Acquisition(DAQ) system. The communication between the Kobe University and the University of Tsukuba did the information transmission between the monitor site of Kobe and the experimental system operator site of Tsukuba, by using the communication of the browser base. The experimental result in the latest shot can be reflected to the parameter change for next shot. The parameter setting and control of DSO etc. becomes possible, without controlling through the operator of the University of Tsukuba by using the common gateway interface (CGI) based program.
