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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

NRC schedules webinars on Holtec’s proposed New Mexico storage site
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled four webinars in late August and early September to present its draft environmental findings and receive comments on Holtec International’s proposed consolidated spent nuclear fuel storage facility in New Mexico. Webinars were previously held on June 23 and July 9.
As published in the August 13 Federal Register, the public comment webinars will be held on August 20 from 6–9 p.m., August 25 from 2–5 p.m., August 26 from 6–9 p.m., and September 2 from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. All times are Eastern. Information for the webinars is posted on the NRC’s Public Meetings webpage.

We researched the AIC (Alfvén Ion Cyclotron) instability. A magnetic probe using microchip-inductor is superior to size and easy to handle. In fluctuation measurement using the GNBP (Gold Neutral Beam Probe) the measured fluctuations may not be local density fluctuation because the beam ionization coefficient depends on not only the electron density but also the temperature, and the secondary beam is deflected by the magnetic field fluctuation, and the beam fluctuation is integrated along the beam trajectory. But we found by simulations such as the AIC fluctuation with small amplitude and high frequency these effects may be neglected. In initial experiment, the GNBP detected successfully the AIC fluctuations with high frequencies excited in the core plasma.
