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.

First experimental results on microwave radiation at double plasma frequency from plasma heated by ~100 keV, 2-10 MW electron beam of ~100 s duration in GOL-3 are presented. Measurements were done in 75-200 GHz band. The spectrum was peaked at ~94 GHz at ~31013 cm-3 plasma density, the temporal behavior of radiated power was spiky. The generation efficiency reached ~1% of total beam power.
