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.

The CORTEX project: Improving nuclear fleet operational availability
We often define noise as an unwanted disturbance, especially acoustic in nature. Neutron noise, by contrast, is a direct measure of the dynamics of a nuclear core. It can be used for core monitoring without disturbing plant operation and by using the existing core instrumentation. The European CORTEX project aims to develop an innovative core monitoring technique using neutron noise, while capitalizing on the latest developments in neutronic modeling, signal processing, and artificial intelligence.
ANS Young Members Group Spotlight on National Labs
July 16, 2020|11:00AM–12:30PM (12:00–1:30PM EDT)
Available to All Users
In the sixth installment of the "Spotlight on National Labs"series, attendees will learn about Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's history and current ongoing research related to nuclear sciences and engineering.
LLNL was created in 1952 as a “new ideas” laboratory to augment the efforts of Los Alamos in accelerating the U.S.’s hydrogen bomb program. Beginning with the vision of Nobel Prize winner and LLNL namesake E.O. Lawrence, the laboratory established a matrix organization that allows experts in various disciplines to assemble as a team and work together to understand and solve complex problems, a distinguishing feature of LLNL that is still in use today. The unique LLNL environment has allowed for advances in many disparate fields, including high performance computing, laser technology, element discovery, and nuclear weapons science and technology.
