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.

Influence of the radial electric field on the MHD-stability was studied in the GDT using a set of biased end plates and limiters that provided a possibility to control radial profile of the plasma potential. It was shown that biasing of the limiters or peripheral end plate section to a potential of 250 - 300 V leads to considerable increase of the energy confinement time due to reduction of the electric field in the plasma volume. MHD-stability of the plasma was observed in this regime with the remote anchors not energized. The possible stabilization mechanism associated with radial electric field is discussed.
