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.

Principles of material accountancy are presented for a typical tritium fuel cycle under special consideration of the in-vessel inventory which for the time being can only be estimated roughly. For this purpose we pursue the selection and testing of suitable algorithms: For the process simulation we apply the stochastic version of the Karlsruhe Tritium Model. It is demonstrated that with the help of statistical methods which have been developed three years ago for the purpose of nuclear material safeguards, the measured data can be analyzed such that questions put forward by the operator as well as the licensing authority can be answered.
