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.

Efficient energy transfer and smoothing effect in laser-irradiated polystyrene foam targets have been observed in preliminary experiments on the PALS iodine laser facility. A theory of laser light absorption region formation and ablation pressure generation in laser-produced plasma of porous matter has been developed and applied for discussion of the results obtained. In particular, two stages of homogenization of the porous matter, important for comprehension of the anomalously high absorption of laser radiation in supercritical foam matter, have been identified: the first, a considerably fast stage of partial homogenization, followed by a much slower second stage, leading to a uniform medium.
