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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

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.

In the report we present a new pollution-free approach to the finite difference reduced-order numerical solving of the wave propagation problem in an axisymmetrical open trap. This approach makes it possible to use an arbitrary mesh. This possibility is very important for ICRF modeling since it allows one to construct a mesh whose lines are aligned along the steady magnetic field and the density of mesh nodes reflects the structure of cyclotron zones in plasma column. In this approach the spurious branch of oscillations is removed and the distortion of numerical solutions in the near-axis region is suppressed. Basing on the approach proposed, a new version of the earlier developed PLFEM code, PLFEM-S, has been constructed. The results of the PLFEM-S code tests for stability and the first results are presented.
