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.

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.
