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.

Hanford completes wastewater basin work to support tank waste treatment
Record-breaking heat and the vast size of the job did not stop the Department of Energy’s Office of River Protection and its tank operations contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS), from completing a construction project critical to the Hanford Site’s Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste program for treating radioactive tank waste.

In tandem mirror GAMMA 10/PDX, H2 gas has been injected to a divertor simulation experimental module (D-module) for radiation cooling and detachment study. Electron temperature (Te) and density (ne) distributions have been measured by Langmuir probes in the D-module. With increase of H2 gas amount, Te has decreased especially at the V-shaped target plate from 30-40 eV to 3-5 eV. Moreover, ne and ion saturation current Iis have increased at the inlet but decreased at the target and had a steeper distribution toward the corner. These results suggest detachment. The movement of the ionization front to the upstream side with increase of the gas is suggested from the change in the plasma parameters profiles along the magnetic field line.
