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.
Isotopes & Radiation
Members are devoted to applying nuclear science and engineering technologies involving isotopes, radiation applications, and associated equipment in scientific research, development, and industrial processes. Their interests lie primarily in education, industrial uses, biology, medicine, and health physics. Division committees include Analytical Applications of Isotopes and Radiation, Biology and Medicine, Radiation Applications, Radiation Sources and Detection, and Thermal Power Sources.

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.

The paper describes research needs in primary R&D areas for the family of dual-coolant lead-lithium (DCLL) blankets. Associated key scaling parameters are introduced and evaluated under conditions of FNSF, ITER and DEMO and also for the existing non-fusion MHD facilities, using the MaPLE loop at UCLA as an example. Comparisons among these parameters are recommended for measuring the R&D progress on the pathway from the present experimental facilities to FNSF. Possible experiments both in the existing facilities and FNSF are discussed along with the flow diagnostics.
