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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

How will you celebrate Nuclear Science Week?
It’s the third week of October, and Nuclear Science Week, first recognized in 2009, has arrived! Nuclear Science Week is an annual opportunity to celebrate nuclear science; recognize the professionals who apply it to solving the world’s most pressing problems; encourage nuclear professional development and networking; and share information with students, educators, and community members about the vital role of nuclear science in the lives of all people.

Measurements of fission fragment data at incident energies (En) up to several tens of MeV require prompt neutron multiplicity distribution ν(A) to determine the preneutron fragment properties. Those ν(A) data are not readily experimentally available. Consequently, model predictions of ν(A) at En where multichance fission occurs are needed. The Point-by-Point model of prompt emission provides the individual ν(A) of compound nuclei of the main and secondary nucleus chains that are undergoing fission at any En. Total ν(A) calculations for n + 235U and n + 239Pu are presented together with systematic behaviors of individual ν(A) with increasing energy.
