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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.

A pilot rig for a preparative gas chromatograph is described. In order to increase the volume of the samples to be separated different separation columns were investigated. The pilot plant is designed as to operate also with two columns at the same time. To recover the separated H isotopes the pilot rig was equipped with three uranium getters which can be automatically switched to the separation columns by electropneumatic valves. These valves are actuated in response to a detector signal. The maximum sample volume achieved with one separation column is 600 ml (STP) of a three-component mixture (H2, HD and D2) with a purity of 98.5 - 98.7% and even 1000 ml (same mixture) with a 91% purity with respect to the components H2/HD.
