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 was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

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.

This study evaluates the physical properties of the molten salt Flinabe, using molecular dynamics simulations to discuss its applicability to a fusion blanket system. More specifically, the simulations calculate the density and viscosity of Flinabe to facilitate further discussion of the applicability from the viewpoint of the heat removal of the first wall. The results of the simulations are compared with data reported in earlier publications, which support the validity of the simulations. This study reveals that Flinabe tends to have lower viscosity than Flibe even when they contain almost the same BeF2. Analyzing the results of the simulations confirms that the degree of polymerization in Flinabe correlates with its viscosity, as that in Flibe does. The analyses also revealed, however, that the correlation in the case of Flibe is not directly applicable to the case of Flinabe.
