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.
Nuclear Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

The Civil Nuclear Credit Program: An overview
Officially established on November 15, 2021, with the signing of the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act—aka the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL—the Department of Energy’s Civil Nuclear Credit Program was designed to give owners/operators of commercial U.S. reactors the opportunity to apply for certification and competitively bid on credits to help support the continued operation of economically troubled units. Finally, the federal government, and not just certain farsighted state governments, would recognize nuclear energy for its important grid reliability and decarbonization attributes.

Smith-Purcell (SP) radiations based on cylindrical surface wave are examined. Cylindrical surface waves are formed on metal cylinders having a periodically corrugated wall. Corrugation parameters are those used in K-band backward wave oscillators (BWOs). The corrugated metal cylinders are excited by an axially injected coaxial annular beam in a weakly relativistic region less than 100 kV. Cylindrical surface wave excitations due to BWO are observed at about 23 GHz. In addition, SP radiations are observed in the higher frequency regions up to about 90-100 GHz, which is about 4 times higher than the frequency of cylindrical surface wave.
