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.

We have started a simulation study of background plasma in the GAMMA 10 west end-cell using a fluid-code in order to understand divertor simulation experiments. In this fluid-code, the configuration of magnetic field lines in the west end-cell of GAMMA 10 is adopted with a mesh structure and basic physical processes such as reflection coefficient and recombination are considered. An initial computation result reveals that in the case of the plasma density range: ne ~ 1019 m-3, ion and electron temperature could not be reduced significantly to the suitable temperature for achieving the detachment. The effect of heat transfer coefficient on the target plasma is also discussed.
