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.

Hanford completes wastewater basin work to support tank waste treatment
Record-breaking heat and the vast size of the job did not stop the Department of Energy’s Office of River Protection and its tank operations contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS), from completing a construction project critical to the Hanford Site’s Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste program for treating radioactive tank waste.

A neutron source for material and component tests is an essential tool for the DEMO reactor development. An accelerator-based neutron source such as IFMIF is regarded as the most promising one in Japan and the EU. The construction plan of IFMIF is still open due to the influence of the large cost overrun of ITER procurements. Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has a plan of a neutron source for material and component tests using an IFMIF/EVEDA prototype accelerator and a lithium test loop for the IFMIF target facility. Expected performances of three options; 9 MeV and upgrading to 26 or 40 MeV of deuteron beam, are discussed. At the back plate position of the target, 1.5, 14, and 25 dpa/fpy are expected for 9, 26, and 40 MeV case, respectively. The option of 40 MeV is desirable, however, the option of 26 MeV is acceptable for blanket functional tests and material tests.
