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.

Numerical kinetic code capable to integrate the dynamical collisional kinetic equation has been developed. The steady state distribution of ions in a mirror cell with flow-through plasmas has been calculated. It has shown that near separatrix there is a phase-space region with unstable inverted gradient of the distribution function. The dispersion relation of the oscillations with ~ b (b is bounce-frequency of ions) has been treated analytically for simplified model with b = const. Interaction of passing ions with the oscillations has been considered. It is found that passing ions could lead to instability as long as their flow velocity is high enough.
