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.

The prospect of a new facility for plasma-surface interaction studies is presented. The unique features of this facility named GDMT-T are ability to generate both stationary plasma flux and transient events which simulate ITER ELM-mode operation and strong magnetic field on the target important for studies of dust and impurity migration. The experimental program of GDMT-T will include testing of plasma-facing components at ITER-relevant conditions and investigations of electron beam generation and beam-plasma interaction for application in the next generation of linear fusion facilities.
