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.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

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.

A high power gyrotron is designed and tested. The design is based on the TE31,8 1 MW gyrotron. The higher power design is realized by choosing TE31,12 higher order oscillation mode. A basic test of the high power gyrotron is performed in JAEA test stand with short pulse and long pulse. In the short pulse experiments, 1020 kW output is confirmed with expected output beam pattern. In the long pulse experiments, it is successfully achieved stable 1 MW operation (1030 kW/2 s). The longest shot is 550 kW/~200 s. These results show successful design and fabrication of the TE31,12 high power gyrotron.
