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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

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 IGNIR collaboration between Italy and Russia is centred on the construction of the core of the Ignitor machine in Italy and its installation and operation within the TRINITI site (Troitsk, Russia). A Preliminary Safety Report is under preparation for the siting of the Ignitor experiment in Troitsk. A specific site has been selected, with characteristics determined from informations regarding TRINITI. This site has many positive characteristics, such as the presence of electrical facilities because of nearby distribution nodes, and the full availability of the required room for the arrangement of all Ignitor buildings. The results of the analyses, both regarding doses to population and personnel, and other environmental impacts, show that the TRINITI site in Troitsk is a consistent choice for Ignitor localisation, according to the safety and the environmental impact point of view.
