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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.
2020 ANS Virtual Winter Meeting

Plasma flow velocity and its shear perpendicular to magnetic-field lines are generated by using the tungsten hot plate concentrically three segmented, which can form the radially-different plasma potential, or radial electric field even in a fully-ionized collisionless plasma. A drift-like instability which exists in the peripheral region, where the density gradient is relatively large, is observed to be suppressed by the perpendicular flow velocity shear in the central region.
