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.

Virginia governor touts nuclear in launch of new state energy plan
Speaking earlier this week at the launch ceremony for Virginia’s 2022 Energy Plan, Gov. Glenn Youngkin called for an all-of-the-above approach, stressing the need for “an achievable and dynamic energy plan that provides for abundant, reliable, affordable, and clean energy.” He also left no doubt as to where nuclear power fits into that plan.
“We have to be all in [for] nuclear energy in Virginia,” Youngkin declared, addressing an audience of lawmakers, workers donning hard hats, and business executives at a power transformer manufacturing facility in Lynchburg. “When it comes to reliability, affordability, when it comes to clean power, when it comes to the abundant nature of growing power demand, absolutely nothing beats nuclear energy. It is the baseload of all baseloads. And Virginia is uniquely positioned to lead.”

In 2013–2014, the FliNaK/LiPb twin-loop system Operational Recovery Of Separated Hydrogen and Heat Inquiry-2 (Oroshhi-2) was constructed at National Institute for Fusion Science as a liquid blanket collaboration platform. Inventory of FLiNaK and LiPb in the system is ~120 L for each, and both loops are providing a stable circulation environment. Oroshhi-2 has flexible capability to perform integrated experiments by installing all the components required for the liquid blanket system in one circulating loop at the same time. A 3-T superconducting magnet and 1-T permanent magnet enable simulation of the reactor environment except for radiations. As of the year of 2018, eight experimental topics related to liquid blanket technologies have been performed, prepared, or proposed as the first step of the Oroshhi-2 experiments. These topics cover the various blanket issues widely from first wall to secondary loop for power generation.
