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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

Climate change needs an Operation Warp Speed
The government of the United States should throw its muscle behind ramping up a mammoth, rapid rollout of all forms of renewable energy through Operation Warp Speed, similar to what is being done with COVID-19, Clive Thompson writes in an Ideas column for Wired.
The rollout should include energy sources that we already know how to build—like solar and wind — but also experimental emerging sources such as geothermal and small nuclear, and cutting-edge forms of energy storage or transmission.

Applications of aerosol dynamics include modeling cloud formation and pollution in atmospheric sciences, inhalation and radiation doses in health physics, and particle transport and contamination in nuclear safety. To improve the fidelity of computed aerosol evolution to realistic process models and phenomena, efforts have been directed at the use of the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) technique. This paper first verifies the results obtained from the DSMC technique against a known analytical solution of a specialized case in which the evolution of a purely growing aerosol is coupled to its environment. Next, it applies the DSMC technique to the evolution of aerosol particles undergoing condensation, coagulation, and deposition as coupled to the environment.
