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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.
2021 Student Conference
April 8–10, 2021
The Standards Committee is responsible for the development and maintenance of voluntary consensus standards that address the design, analysis, and operation of components, systems, and facilities related to the application of nuclear science and technology.

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 new high-speed camera (MEMRECAM GX-1, NAC Inc.) has been installed at the GAMMA 10 central-cell. This camera observes two directions through vertical and horizontal ports by using dual optical fiber bundles. This paper describes the results of 2-D image of visible emission observed from the central-cell plasma during Supersonic Molecular Beam injection (SMBI) in the C-ECRH experiments. Observational results showed that the instability of plasma light-emission on the central-limiter was suppressed during SMBI and the plasma sustainability increased along the SMBI plenum pressure. Relationship between plasma sustainability and power of C-ECRH and/or the quantity of SMBI is also investigated.
