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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

A Dialogue on Chemically-Induced Nuclear Effects is a comprehensive and accurate summary of most of the work available on the topic of cold fusion. Funded by the Electric Power Research Institute, the intent of this work is to provide an objective look at the anomalous nuclear effects research that is central to the cold fusion controversy. The essence of the cold fusion story is the question of whether chemistry can affect nuclear reactions. Presented in dialogue fashion (the young physicist to the older metallurgist), this interestingly written book attempts to aid in an understanding of the artifacts that confuse the issues.
