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.

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.

In nonmechanical beam steering with phase conjugate (PC) mirrors, the scattered and reflected beams from a foam target are utilized. A scattering and reflection model has been made that coincides with the experimental results with an error between ±15%. In the case where four probe beams irradiated a foam target, the three-dimensional intensity distribution was simulated. The peak-to-minimum variation of the reflected plus the scattered energy per unit solid angle was [approximately]20% of the average energy.The PC beam direction needs to compensate for target motion (v [approximately] 300 m/s) to accurately irradiate an injected target with laser beams in the method of beam steering with PC mirrors. The compensation with four-wave mixing utilized as a PC mirror is shown. A PC beam can be adjusted by properly setting the angle between two pump beams.
