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.

Nuclear in K-12 education: Overview of ANS toolkit and reflections from educators
A free webinar today from 3:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. (EDT) will look at the resources that the American Nuclear Society has developed with Discovery Education and the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy to help K-12 educators teach nuclear science and technology.
The webinar will begin with an overview of the resources, followed by reflections and commentary from three educators of various grade levels on their experiences teaching nuclear science and their thoughts about ANS’s instructional materials. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session with the panelists.
Registration is required for this Nuclear Science Week event.

The Ion Beam Facility of Los Alamos National Laboratory could routinely provide accelerated bunched triton beams to be used in neutron time-of-flight experiments. Exploratory measurements at 0 deg were done to determine the neutron yield with target materials throughout the periodic system yielding absolute specific double-differential neutron yields. Only a few of these measurements were made public previously. The results of these measurements having a mainly demonstrative purpose are presented here because of their uniqueness. For lithium and beryllium, double-differential neutron emission cross sections are given at 17.2 and 15.2 MeV, respectively.
