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.

Fund to spur new nuclear projects launched in U.K.
The U.K. government is providing £120 million (about $149.9 million) for a new fund designed to support the development of new nuclear energy projects, stimulate competition in the industry, and unlock investment.

The performance and eligibility of the fiber optic laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (FO-LIBS) instrument will be primarily evaluated at the Advanced Spent Fuel Conditioning Process Facility (ACPF), where spent nuclear fuel is processed in a high-temperature molten salt bath using electrochemical methods. The damage incurred by the optical fiber cable due to radiation should be addressed to ensure the reliability of FO-LIBS measurements. High-level and low-level gamma ray and neutron irradiation experiments were conducted to measure the effect of radiation on the optical transmission rate of the optical fiber cable. Conclusively, we determined the dependence of the transmission rate of the cable on the radiation dose rate as a function of the wavelength.
