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 was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

Pact signed on potential BWRX-300 deployment in Saskatchewan
Ontario-based GEH SMR Technologies Canada Ltd. and the Saskatchewan Industrial and Mining Suppliers Association (SIMSA) announced yesterday the signing of a memorandum of understanding focused on the potential deployment of the BWRX-300 small modular reactor in Saskatchewan.
The MOU calls for engaging with local suppliers to maximize the role of the Saskatchewan supply chain in the nuclear energy industry.

We are proposing to connect a supercritical CO2 gas turbine (SCOT) power generator to the Operational Recovery of Separated Hydrogen and Heat Inquiry-2 (Oroshhi-2) nuclear fusion primary molten salt test loop constructed at the National Institute for Fusion Science and conduct a demonstration test of the power generation principle from the world’s first nuclear fusion simulated heat output. In this paper, we describe the results of a design study of the FLiNaK/CO2 intermediate heat exchanger and SCOT power generation system and related equipment that can be connected to the molten salt test loop. From the results of this study, it was concluded that the power generation principle verification test with 20-kW(electric)–class power generation with an efficiency of 20% is possible by the SCOT system connected to the FLiNaK test loop in Oroshhi-2 equipment via the intermediate heat exchanger.
