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.

ANS Board of Directors votes to retire outdated position statements
The American Nuclear Society’s Board of Directors on November 19 voted to retire several outdated position statements, as requested by the Public Policy Committee. Among them are Position Statements #37 and #63, dating from 2010, which have been retired for lacking policy recommendations and for being redundant, as other position statements exist with language that better articulates the Society’s stance on those topics.

The neutron reaction data of 181Ta for the incident energy up to 200 MeV are urgently required for the study of nuclear reactor systems of fission or fusion. To meet this requirement, all cross sections, angular distributions, energy spectra, and double-differential cross sections for n + 180m,181Ta reactions are consistently calculated and analyzed at incident neutron energies up to 200 MeV. The theoretical results are compared with the experimental data and the evaluated results in ENDF/B-VIII, JENDL-4, and JEFF-3.
