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.

The TRIO-01 experiment is a comprehensive test of in-situ tritium recovery from a miniaturized solid breeder blanket assembly. Other solid breeder blanket performance factors such as thermal hydraulics, tritium permeation, and gas phase chemistry will be tested as well. The capsule assembly is irradiated in the A2 core position of the Oak Ridge Research Reactor (ORR). Tritium release and recovery is tested by passing a He sweep gas through the solid breeder capsule measuring and collecting the tritium in the sweep stream. The TRIO-01 experiment has extensive on-line monitoring including sweep gas analysis, temperatures, neutron flux, and tritium permeation.
