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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

Framatome, Ultra Safe partner to manufacture TRISO and FCM fuel
Framatome and Ultra Safe Nuclear announced on January 26 that they intend to form a joint venture to manufacture commercial quantities of tristructural isotropic (TRISO) particles and Ultra Safe’s proprietary fully ceramic microencapsulated (FCM) fuel.
The companies have signed a nonbinding agreement to integrate their resources to bring commercially viable, fourth-generation nuclear fuel to market for Ultra Safe’s micro-modular reactor (MMR) and other advanced reactor designs.

High-quality nuclear data are required for reliable design calculations of fusion reactors as well as analyses related to safety, licensing, waste management, and decommissioning issues. The current work is focused on improving neutron activation cross-section data for nuclear reactions needed for fusion applications but also satisfying specific astrophysical needs. The cross-section data were evaluated on the basis of nuclear model calculation using the TALYS-1.8 code with varying nuclear model parameters. The evaluated data were compared to recent experimental data taken from EXFOR and other evaluated nuclear data libraries. Validation of the current evaluations has been performed using both differential and integral data sets. The updated cross-section data are going to be adopted into the new version of the TALYS Evaluated Nuclear Data Library.
