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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

Finding fusion’s place
Fusion energy is attracting significant interest from governments and private capital markets. The deployment of fusion energy on a timeline that will affect climate change and offer another tool for energy security will require support from stakeholders, regulators, and policymakers around the world. Without broad support, fusion may fail to reach its potential as a “game-changing” technology to make a meaningful difference in addressing the twin challenges of climate change and geopolitical energy security.
The process of developing the necessary policy and regulatory support is already underway around the world. Leaders in the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, China, and elsewhere are engaging with the key issues and will lead the way in setting the foundation for a global fusion industry.

Long-pulse operation has been initially and successfully demonstrated during a 100-s stable beam extraction in the neutral beam test stand (NBTS) system of the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) for the positive ion source (IS) of the JT-60SA neutral beam injector. The NBTS system was constructed at KAERI to develop 300-s deuterium beam extractions of 100 kV/50 A as an auxiliary heating system of the Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR). The IS of the JT-60SA neutral beam injector is composed of a plasma generator and a set of tetrode accelerators. The beamline components include an optical multichannel analyzer duct, a neutralizer, a bending magnet (BM), a calorimeter, and a vacuum pump system. The beam power deposition of the IS and the beamline components along the NBTS have been measured by water flow calorimetry (WFC), and a total of 99.7% of the extracted beam power (Vacc∙Iacc) was counted for a hydrogen beam of 82 kV/25 A (2.05 MW) during 100-s beam extraction. To reduce the localized heat load on the calorimeter plate, a method of small-angle deflection for the ion beam particles was applied using a small alternate current of 8 A, 0.5 Hz for the BM coil.
