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.

A day in the life of the nuclear community
The November issue of Nuclear News is focused on the individuals who make up our nuclear community.
We invited a small group of those individuals to tell us about their day-to-day work in some of the many occupations and applications of nuclear science and technology, and they responded generously. They were ready to tell us about the part they play, together with colleagues and team members, in supplying clean energy, advancing technology, protecting safety and health, and exploring fundamental science.
In these pages, we see a community that can celebrate both those workdays that record progress moving at a steady pace and the exceptional days when a goal is reached, a briefing is delivered, a contract goes through, a discovery is made, or an unforeseen challenge is overcome.
The Nuclear News staff hopes that you enjoy meeting these members of our community—or maybe get reacquainted with friends—through their words and photos.

A new LPCE column (LPCE-3) of 2 m packing height and 50 mm inner diameter expands the experimental potential of “EVIO” pilot plant. Fresh RCTU-3SM catalyst of somewhat greater average percentage of Platinum and a little larger dimension of SDBC carrier has been tested in LPCE-3. Both hydraulic and isotope separation characteristics of LPCE-3 filled with alternating layers of the catalyst and packing in the volume ratio of 1:4 (the same packing and ratio which are used in LPCE-1 and LPCE-2 columns) have been studied. The experimental results are presented in comparison with ones received on LPCE-1 and LPCE-2 earlier. This paper aims to the problem of comparing different columns operated at dissimilar conditions and separating different isotopes. In the search for an invariant, which would unambiguously present performance of LPCE, it is experimentally shown that performance expressed by a 3-fluid model characteristic, Kc – mass-transfer coefficient for catalytic exchange (at fixed mass-transfer coefficient for phase exchange) is the same for different isotopes and different temperatures in contrast to the overall mass-transfer coefficient, Kya.
