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.

President's Profile Steven Arndt: Prioritizing participation and advocacy
Steven Arndt began his one-year term last month as president of the American Nuclear Society, bringing the same high level of energy, investment, and action he has exhibited throughout his career. Reflecting on a life spent improving nuclear safety and technology, he notes that it’s not just the work; it’s also about the people and building connections and relationships. Arndt fondly recalls Peter Lyons, former NRC commissioner, assistant secretary of energy for nuclear energy, and ANS board member who passed away in April 2021. “I have been incredibly lucky to know and work with some great people in our field, and almost to a person they have been like Pete Lyons,” Arndt said. “They have been gregarious, outgoing, and supportive.”

The Japanese Government designated JAEA as the Domestic Agency of Japan (JADA) for the ITER Project just after the entry into force of the ITER Agreement on 24th Oct. 2007. In-kind procurements allotted to JADA amount to about 16% of the total according to the "Common Understandings on Procurement Allocation". The first procurement arrangement for 25% of the TF superconductors was concluded in November 2007 between the ITER Organization (IO) and the JADA After the bidding, venders for fabricating 15% of the TF conductors were selected in March 2008. The Quality Assurance Program of JADA, that is indispensable for implementing procurement, was approved by IO, and the Project Management of JADA subsequently got underway. Preparation for the procurement continues for the instruments and equipment that JA has the responsibility to procure. JADA also has performed tasks requested by IO on the PF conductor and the accelerator of the neutral beam injector system, etc.
