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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

NRC shares Clinton license renewal application online
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has published Clinton Power Station’s initial license renewal on the agency’s website.
Constellation Energy submitted the application February 14, seeking an extension for the Illinois plant's current operating license from 20 years to 40 years. This would allow the Illinois plant to run through 2047.

Because fatigue resistance is one of the most important issues for the blanket structural materials of the fusion reactor, the fatigue damage formation processes of the advanced SiC/SiC composite (Tyranno SA 3rd/CVI-SiC composite with SiC/C multilayer interphase) for fusion reactor applications were investigated. The fatigue tests of the SiC/SiC composite were successfully performed up to 105 cycles with no significant technical issues by using a small specimen test technique developed under the IFMIF/EVEDA. Based on the evaluation of the modulus change during the fatigue tests, the tensile loading was clarified to be a dominant factor for the degradation of the SiC/SiC composite.
