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.

Production of high plasmas in anchor-cell is necessary for MHD stabilization on the tandem mirror GAMMA10. Plasma heating in anchor-cell has been carried out by ICRF system (RF1) with both east and west Type-III antennas installed in the central-cell. By using an additional ICRF system (RF3) with a bar-type antenna installed in the east anchor-cell, more effective anchor heating has been confirmed. East Type-III and the bar-type antennas are driven with the same frequency and phase difference between two antennas can be controlled in the experiment. Plasma parameters depend on the phase difference between both antennas. Increase of the line density and the soft X-ray signal are observed in the opposite phase. Stable plasma production with only east RF1 and east RF3 are also confirmed.
