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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

IPCC opens registration for expert review of draft report
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—the United Nations body established to assess the science related to climate change—is offering experts an opportunity to review the draft version of its Sixth Assessment Synthesis Report.
IPCC assessment reports are published every six to seven years. The Fifth Assessment Report, completed in 2014, provided the main scientific input to the 2015 Paris Agreement.
Interested experts can register for participation in the review here. Registration is open through March 13. The review period ends on March 20.

A feasibility study for the heavy ion beam probe on the Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) stellarator was done to provide measurements of the radial profiles of plasma potential, density, and their fluctuations. Calculations of probing Tl+ beam trajectories were done for the various W7-X magnetic configurations with Btor = 2.5 T. They show that satisfactory access is possible for K11-N11 port combination. The trajectory optimization aiming for the maximal plasma observation was done for the chosen port combination.
