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.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

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.

Edge plasma behavior was observed by fast camera at high density central-cell plasma in GAMMA 10. The plasma performance was better when the plasma rotated clockwise to the magnetic field. Also, when the interaction with the central-cell limiter was observed, the plasma stored energy was deteriorated. These results were very similar that of high potential central-cell plasma experiment as previously reported. Several rotation mechanisms exist, and on the empirical basis it is suggested the interaction with the central-cell limiter is important.
