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.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

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.

A system for electron cyclotron resonance plasma heating (ECRH) has been recently installed at the GDT (Gas Dynamic Trap) facility at Budker Institute. The system is based on two 5.5-mm gyrotrons and is designed to deliver two microwave beams with total power of 700 kW and X-mode polarization that are absorbed at the fundamental cyclotron harmonic. A significant increase of basic plasma parameters (energy content, electron temperature, neutron flux) during the injection of microwave radiation has been registered. In particular, the on-axis electron temperature was increased from 200 eV to 600 eV in several shots with ECRH, which establishes a new record for this class of magnetic installation.
