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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

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.
