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.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Three ICRF sources (RF1, RF2 and RF3) are used for the plasma production and heating in the GAMMA 10 tandem mirror. The initial plasma in a standard mode of operation is produced by using RF1 and RF2 with near fundamental ion cyclotron frequencies. Under the present experimental conditions, an eigenmode which has a fundamental radial structure is only excited and the density is clamped so as to satisfy the boundary conditions in the axial direction. When RF3 with a frequency range of high harmonic fast waves is applied, several eigenmodes with different radial structures can be excited and the density clamping is released. Two different frequencies are used in the RF3 system; one is 63 MHz which corresponds to the 10th harmonic ion cyclotron frequency near the midplane of the central cell and the other is 41.5 MHz. The density increase due to the excitation of the high harmonic fast waves are observed in both cases. It is observed the high energy ions are produced due to the higher harmonic resonance.
