Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO)

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is home to Australian’s nuclear science and technical expertise. ANSTO, an Australian Government funded organisation, operates much of Australia’s landmark science facilities including one of the world’s most modern nuclear research reactors, OPAL. ANSTO operates a comprehensive suite of neutron beam instruments within the Bragg Institute, the Australian Synchroton, the National Imaging Facility Research Cyclotron and the Centre for Accelerator Science. Nuclear science and technology is used to improve health outcomes, increase understanding of the environment and support innovation in industry.
