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.

Granholm visits Clinch River Site to show support for SMRs
Energy secretary Jennifer Granholm visited the Clinch River Nuclear Site in Oak Ridge, Tenn., on December 5 to highlight the Biden administration’s support for the Tennessee Valley Authority’s advanced nuclear technology program.
Granholm indicated that the administration is willing to provide funding for the nation’s first commercial small modular reactor at the site. “Excited to see a shovel in the ground, hopefully in a few more years,” she said. “TVA is leading on small modular reactors with this site. Everybody’s looking to TVA to make sure that this can actually happen.”

For material spontaneously generating fission chains, the arrival times of neutron and gamma-ray counts create a clustering pattern distinctly different from a random source. A theory for the time interval distribution between counts is given. As well as the distribution of nearest-neighbor counts, we give the general distributions for all n'th-neighbor intervals. The sum of these distributions gives the Rossi correlation function. This theory supplies the direct link between the experimentally measured quantities and the theory of the Rossi correlation function.
