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.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

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.
