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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.
2021 Student Conference

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 2-Dimensional soft X-ray behavior during ECR heating have been examined in the GAMMA 10 tandem mirror. The peak position shifts several cm during the ECRH period, and it is found the peak position of the soft X-ray is rotating around the center axis of the vessel and its direction is same as that of E×B drift. In high power heating case, the oscillation of the peak position, decrease of the diamagnetism and line density are observed. The radial ion current measured by the ion sensitive probe increases depending on the ECRH power together with increase in the radius of the SX-peak rotation.
