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.

ANS webinar to focus on low-dose radiation risk
Join ANS on Thursday, January 21, at noon (ET) for a Q&A with an expert panel as they discuss how to communicate about the risk of low-dose radiation. “Talking About Low-dose Radiation Risk” is a free members-only event that serves as a follow-up to the “Risky Business” President’s Session that took place during the ANS Virtual Winter Meeting last November. The session will take a deeper dive into the many questions generated from the thought-provoking discussion.
Register now to attend the webinar.

To obtain a fast estimation of the total impurity density distribution in a poloidal cross section from soft X-ray (SXR) measurements during quasi-stationary phases, the possibility that ionization equilibrium may have little influence on the emissivity profile of Ni and Fe in the core region of tokamak plasmas is investigated. Preliminary and encouraging results that support this assumption under certain conditions are found. A simplified approach aimed at computing a satisfactory estimation of the total density of a unique and identified impurity directly from an absolutely calibrated SXR tomographic inversion is implemented. An example of application to a previously and independently performed transport simulation of a Ni injection in Tore Supra is then given.
