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 provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

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.

The effect of heating temperature on deuterium (D) retention behavior for helium (He+) / carbon (C+) implanted tungsten (W) was studied. It was found that D retention behavior for He+ implanted W was not limited by the size of the He bubbles. The microstructure observation showed that the large helium bubbles were formed near the surface for He+ implanted W at 1173 K, suggesting that the D retention was reduced by the growth of the helium bubbles. In addition, to evaluate the effect of implantation ion species at high temperature, D retention behavior for He+ implanted W at 1173 K was compared with that for C+ implanted W at 673 K. It is concluded that the D retention depends on ion species, which makes different kinds of damages like He bubbles for He+ implantation and vacancy-ion complex (voids) for C+ implantation.
