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 Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

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.

Ion cyclotron resonant heating (ICRH) experiments have been carried out on the central cell of the HANBIT magnetic mirror. In these experiments were tested startup, heating, electrostatic ion confinement and electric potential modification which makes use of the electron cyclotron resonant heating (ECRH).
The ions heated by the wave are generally either reflected near magnetic field or are eventually disappeared into the loss cone. The small Faraday cup is used to measure the ions heated by the RF wave. End loss analyzers, types of electrostatic potential multi-grid Faraday cup have been used to measure the current and the axial energy distribution of ions escaping along magnetic field lines in the magnetic mirror machine. The change of the end loss ion current was shown to be consistent with the measured changes in the plasma potential when the ECRH occurred at the Plug region.
