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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

The CORTEX project: Improving nuclear fleet operational availability
We often define noise as an unwanted disturbance, especially acoustic in nature. Neutron noise, by contrast, is a direct measure of the dynamics of a nuclear core. It can be used for core monitoring without disturbing plant operation and by using the existing core instrumentation. The European CORTEX project aims to develop an innovative core monitoring technique using neutron noise, while capitalizing on the latest developments in neutronic modeling, signal processing, and artificial intelligence.

Nuclear technology provides numerous benefits to American society as a reliable, clean source of electricity. Additionally, nuclear technology strengthens national security. The ability to expand our nuclear fleet is crucial for maintaining American influence in the global nuclear industry. Educational institutions create a pipeline for people to become experts in nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and international treaty verification necessary for this expansion. In this session, we will look at the current influence of nuclear technology on American national security and where the country stands in leading the future global nuclear industry. Fast-forward ten years, what should U.S. nuclear interests be, and what role should the U.S. play in the worldwide development of nuclear technology while strengthening national security? The multitude of stakeholders involved in nuclear science are all working towards the improvement of the current and future status of nuclear energy, technology, and policy in the U.S. But what is this shared goal, and what path should be taken to get there?
