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.

The Broader Approach (BA) activities have been launched in 2007 under the framework of collaboration between Japan and EURATOM. The BA activities aim at complementing the ITER project and at an early realization offusion energy by carrying out R&D and developing some advanced technologies for the future demonstration power reactor (DEMO). Three research projects are to be undertaken in Japan. They are 1) Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activities for the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF/EVEDA), 2) International Fusion Energy Research Center (IFERC), and 3) Satellite Tokamak Program, where the JT-60 tokamak will be upgraded to an advanced superconducting tokamak.The IFERC project is to be carried out at a new research site prepared in Rokkasho, Aomori, Japan. The construction of the buildings started in March 2008 and will be completed in FY 2009 (March 2010), followed by the installation of the experimental equipments for the DEMO R&D.
