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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

In GAMMA 10/PDX, divertor simulation studies have been started as a new research plan by using end-loss plasma flux at the end-mirror region. A divertor simulation experimental module (D-module) was installed in the west end-cell. Here we introduce a novel microwave interferometer system with a phase imaging method, and all the crucial components are designed and tested. Finally, we tested the interferometer system using a Teflon plate in substitution for plasma. In order to improve the system accuracy, the phase detection circuit was modified and the phase difference of each channel was verified.
