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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

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.

Tritium is formed by neutrons captured from deuterium. If left to accumulate, tritium oxide will become a hazard to the operating staff and public. The primary purpose of a Tritium Removal Facility (TRF) is to reduce tritium concentration in a heavy water moderator. In Korea, operation of a TRF commenced at the Wolsong Nuclear Power Site on July 26th, 2007. Nowadays, KAERI is developing a Very High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactor (VHTR). We have developed a tritium behavior analysis code for the VHTR. We also developed analytical methods for the measurement of food stuffs. Korea shared in the construction of the ITER fuel cycle plant with the EU, Japan, and the US, and is responsible for the supply of an SDS (Tritium Storage and Delivery System). We present the recent progress in the development of tritium storage technology, and safety features of the related system. KAERI has been developing tritium technologies related to the Wolsong TRF, HANARO, VHTR, and nuclear fusion fuel systems. We thus present details on the recent development progress of these tritium systems.
