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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

Obtaining denaturated plutonium with 238Pu/Pu 6% in CANDU reactors can be achieved by introducing either 241Am or 237Np into the nuclear fuel. It was found that about the same results are obtained by doping the fuel with 241Am or 237Np. In order not to reduce the fuel burnup, there is a need to enrich the uranium to 0.8% for both 241Am and 237Np doping.
