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.
Human Factors, Instrumentation & Controls
Improving task performance, system reliability, system and personnel safety, efficiency, and effectiveness are the division's main objectives. Its major areas of interest include task design, procedures, training, instrument and control layout and placement, stress control, anthropometrics, psychological input, and motivation.

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.

Cylindrical surface waves (CSWs) and slow-wave instabilities of a rectangularly corrugated cylinder are numerically examined. CSWs are slow waves with upper cutoffs at the point. The upper cutoff frequency increases with increasing cylindrical radius R0. There are two types of higher-order CSWs: one is due to azimuthal standing waves and the other is due to radial standing waves in the corrugation. Both higher-order types of SWSs have lower cutoffs as well as upper cutoffs leading to pass and stop bands. Slow space charge and slow cyclotron modes of an annular beam exist, which excite the Cherenkov and slow cyclotron instabilities of CSWs, respectively. The growth rates of the higher-order CSWs are comparable to those of the fundamental SWSs.
