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.
The division provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

A polarization reversal of an electromagnetic wave relating to electron cyclotron resonance in an inhomogeneously magnetized plasma-filled waveguide is investigated by using a one-dimensional code of full wave analysis with cold plasma approximation, and its results are compared with the experimentally observed polarization reversal, which has already been reported [Phys. Rev. Lett., 94, 215001 (2005)]. It is found that the polarization reversal can be reproduced by this code and its results are in good agreement with the experimental ones. The polarization-reversal position is affected by a wavenumber perpendicular to the magnetic-field lines, which is determined by the radial boundary condition between the plasma column and the peripheral vacuum layer in our experiments.
