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.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

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.

The structure of deposited carbon layers formed under various conditions ranging from small scale laboratory to large scale magnetic confinement devices was characterized using Raman spectroscopy. By comparing ion beam and TEXTOR experiments, the deposition temperature is found to be the dominant factor in three dimensional disorder of sp2 sites and sp3 ratio at T>493 K. While, no clear temperature dependence on properties of aromatic rings was observed, indicating other parameters responsible for the aromatic rings present in carbon deposition layers. The carbon layers from JET differed significantly, indicating influence of Be compound formation on Raman parameters.
