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.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

The direct detailed observations of temporally and spatially resolved plasma behavior of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) anchor stabilization for central-cell plasmas are carried out by the use of our newly developed semiconductor x-ray detector arrays installed in both central-cell and anchor regions of the GAMMA 10 tandem mirror. In comparison to the previous reports, the present x-ray observations directly clarify an unsolved issue of the behavior of the internal core-plasma structure during the MHD destabilization experiments. The present x-ray analyses by the use of our proposed method with our developed matrix-type semiconductor detector are, therefore, characterized in terms of providing the direct detailed “visible” structural information on the interior core-plasma behavior during the period with the MHD instability, as well as showing the important role of the minimum-B inboard anchor in the MHD plasma stabilization in GAMMA 10.
