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.

ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.

Various techniques for tritium removal from the liquid eutectic Li17Pb83 under vacuum are considered as candidates for the tritium removal system (TRS) for the Mirror Advanced Reactor Study (MARS). The TRS baseline parameters require the removal of 60% of the tritium contained in the liquid metal at a tritium partial pressure of 1.0 × 10−4 torr (0.013 Pa). Degassing from a droplet spray was chosen as the preferred design option, although removal from thin films is a feasible alternative. Vacuum removal from a stirred pool was rejected because of the size and relatively poor transport conditions. The use of an inert purge gas was also rejected due to the large purge gas flow rate and the problem of separating tritium from a large quantity of inert gas.
