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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

FERC to look at grid reliability
Spurred by last week’s power grid failure in Texas, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Monday announced that it will open a new proceeding to examine the threat that climate change and extreme weather events pose to electric reliability. The proceeding, FERC said, will investigate how grid operators prepare for and respond to these events, including droughts, extreme cold, wildfires, hurricanes, and prolonged heat waves.

For the GAMMA10 tandem mirror, a 28 GHz 1 MW gyrotron has been developed. The output power was achieved 1 MW in short pulse test, and 0.54 MW / 2 s in long pulse test. Moreover, the temperature rise of sapphire single disk window installed in 28 GHz 1 MW gyrotron was measured. The temperature rise was 9 K at 0.45 MW / 2 s. On the basis of the results of the performance test, the designs of 28 GHz 1 MW gyrotron have been improved to enable the operation of 1.5 ~ 2.0 MW several sec. required in GAMMA10 and NSTX, and 0.4 MW CW required in QUEST.
