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.

A day in the life of the nuclear community
The November issue of Nuclear News is focused on the individuals who make up our nuclear community.
We invited a small group of those individuals to tell us about their day-to-day work in some of the many occupations and applications of nuclear science and technology, and they responded generously. They were ready to tell us about the part they play, together with colleagues and team members, in supplying clean energy, advancing technology, protecting safety and health, and exploring fundamental science.
In these pages, we see a community that can celebrate both those workdays that record progress moving at a steady pace and the exceptional days when a goal is reached, a briefing is delivered, a contract goes through, a discovery is made, or an unforeseen challenge is overcome.
The Nuclear News staff hopes that you enjoy meeting these members of our community—or maybe get reacquainted with friends—through their words and photos.

This technical note describes advances in the activity measurement of tritiated water with the method of scintillation counting in a solid fibre. The device described can be installed inline thus enabling the monitoring of a process without the need for taking samples. Due to the low overall costs, the system can be installed at various positions in a larger plant adding additional safety and better control over the process. The current technical note on the TRAMPEL setup (TRitium Activity Monitoring with a PhotomultipliEr in Liquids) focuses on the updates and enhanced detection limits due to an updated readout and DAQ system. It is now possible to measure inline down to activity concentrations of 104 Bq/ml, which is roughly one order of magnitude lower than previously reported. A possible memory effect as well as the influence of the filling level was investigated. All measurements were performed with a standalone (non-inline) cell but can be applied for a flow-through application, too.
