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.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

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.

GAMMA 10/PDX project is the development of the mirror devices to aim the fusion-reactor relevant research using the potential control and the end loss as the particle and heat fluxes for transport, divertor plasma physics and Plasma Wall Interaction (PWI) studies. It was obtained that more than 10 MW/m2 heat flux density for PWI studies. The closed divertor-simulator module has been newly installed. The first studies of this module have been done and obtained the expected plasma flow. We will strengthen the module functions and diagnostic capability and heating systems to enable to be more reactor-relevant simulator. In the core transport control by the ECH, correlation studies of the radial electric field profile and the fluctuations are made and the high coherency is confirmed by using the new two-point potential detector of the Gold Neutral Beam Probe(GNBP). The maximum electron temperature obtained so far is - 150 eV during the ECH by Thomson Scattering, but we need more studies for the high power ECH optimization. As one of the key tools for the new GAMMA 10/PDX project, 2 MW gyrotron development at 28 GHz has been started, based on the success of 77 GHz-1.9 MW output. The maximum outputs of 1 MW at 28 GHz in short pulse and 540kW for 2 s are obtained.
