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 Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

Plasmas with field reversed configuration (FRC) are confined in open systems and have extremely high beta value of about 100% and they are one of candidates for an attractive reactor. But, in many cases they are produced in theta pinch apparatus and accessibility of additional heating facilities is poor. In order to solve this problem and to realize density appropriate for neutral beam injection, technology of translation is useful. By the translation, an FRC plasma is ejected out from theta pinch formation region and is translocated into a confinement region. With this translation, experiments related to sustain and control the FRC plasma become to be accomplished. Actually, axial magnetic compression, neutral beam heating and low frequency RF wave heating experiments are carried out on the FRC Injection Experiment (FIX) apparatus.
