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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

Elementary school resources added to Navigating Nuclear
Elementary school lesson plans are the latest additions to the Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World website. The two lesson plans were created to help students in grades 3-5 understand the power of the atom and how to investigate different energy sources.
Navigating Nuclear is a K-12 nuclear science and energy curriculum created in partnership by the American Nuclear Society and Discovery Education, with lead funding from the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy.

In this study, the calculations of proton emission spectra and of the excitation function produced by 63Cu(n, xp) and 63Cu(n, p)63Ni reactions, respectively, are used in the framework of preequilibrium models with the new version of the EMPIRE 3.2 code. Exciton Model predictions combined with the Kalbach angular distribution systematics and the Hybrid Monte Carlo Simulation (HMS) were used, and some necessary parameters have been investigated for our calculations. The comparison with experimental data shows clear improvement over the Exciton Model and HMS calculations.
