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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

Destruction of Ukrainian dam threatens Zaporizhzhia
A Soviet-era dam downstream from the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southeastern Ukraine collapsed last evening, causing the water level of the Kakhovka Reservoir north of the dam to drop and raising new concerns over the already jeopardized safety of the Russian-occupied nuclear facility, Europe’s largest. The reservoir supplies water for, among other things, Zaporizhzhia’s cooling systems.

A measurement of the 235U prompt fission neutron spectrum (PFNS) was performed at the Budapest Nuclear Research Reactor at 100 K incident neutron energy. The motivation for this investigation was to verify some literature data measured over the past 20 years that contradict the Los Alamos model, as well as integral data, benchmark (Keff) experiments, and recent spectral data taken at 0.5 MeV incident neutron energy. The measured spectra using three neutron detectors are in excellent agreement with each other. The average spectrum confirms literature data within the error bars in the neutron energy range of 0.7 to 10 MeV. However, the present PFNS shape cannot predict integral experimental data. It seems to be clear now that the disagreement between microscopic and macroscopic data is not connected with a systematic experimental error in the PFNS at low incident neutron energy.
