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.

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.

In order to make proof of the recovery of hydrogen isotopes from a liquid lithium (Li) blanket, we experimented the recovery of deuterium (D) dissolved in Li by means of yttrium (Y) metal at 300°C. In the experiment, 160 wppm D dissolved in Li was removed down to 1 wppm by means of the Y trap maintained at 300°C under fluidized Li conditions. The ratio of the final-state D concentration dissolved in Li to the initial one is defined as a removal efficiency, and the removal efficiency was found to be in proportion to the D concentration remained in Li. In addition, judging from its dependence on D concentration remained in Li, it was found that the removal efficiency is well consistent with the secondary-order reaction process and the removal efficiency was correlated to a function of contact time.
