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 provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

NC State celebrates 70 years of nuclear engineering education

The Department of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University has spent the 2020–2021 academic year celebrating the 70th anniversary of its becoming the first U.S. university to establish a nuclear engineering curriculum. It started in 1950, when Clifford Beck, then of Oak Ridge, Tenn., obtained support from NC State’s dean of engineering, Harold Lampe, to build the nation’s first university nuclear reactor and, in conjunction, establish an educational curriculum dedicated to nuclear engineering.
The department, host to the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, scheduled for April 8–10, now features 23 tenure/tenure-track faculty and three research faculty members. “What a journey for the first nuclear engineering curriculum in the nation,” said Kostadin Ivanov, professor and department head.

Deuterium ion implantation experiments into Li2TiO3 and TiO2 were performed with various ion fluences to elucidate the role of lithium on deuterium retention behavior in Li2TiO3. The experimental results showed that there were four deuterium trapping states in TiO2; two of them were interacted near the surface and the others were deuterium trapped by E'-center and bound to oxygen with forming TiO-D bond in bulk. For Li2TiO3, there were five trapping states; four of them were the same as those in TiO2 and the other was that bound to oxygen with forming LiO-D bond. The implanted deuterium was preferentially trapped by E'-center with forming hydroxide. LiOD phase was formed as increasing ion fluence. The retention of deuterium trapped by E'-center for Li2TiO3 was less than that for TiO2, indicating that the migration of lithium via irradiation defects during implantation refrains the deuterium retention in Li2TiO3.
