Michigan State University’s Board of Trustees approved several infrastructure updates, including an expansion to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). “The proposed addition adds two more testing end-stations and the additional capacity provided by the building expansion addresses this national need by allowing user teams to test 24/7, eliminating current gaps in testing time needed for user team set-up and take-down,” the resolution said.

Michigan State University’s Board of Trustees voted to approve an expansion to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The expansion will increase the facility’s ability to test vehicle chips against cosmic rays, the resolution said. Planning costs are estimated at $1 million. 

Using quantum Monte Carlo calculations, researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich, the University of Bonn, and the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University computed the overlap between energy states of different Hamiltonians using the floating block method. The floating block method rearranges the time blocks in a stepwise manner by using imaginary (as opposed to real-valued) time evolution for two distinct Hamiltonians to compute the overlap between energy states.

As part of Michigan State University’s 2024 MSUFCU Arts Power Up artists-in-residence, Abel Korinsky of Berlin, Germany, is in residence during the spring semester. This inaugural open call for artists is a collaboration between the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams; the MSU Museum; the STEAMpower Project, Michigan State University’s art, science and culture collaborative; and Arts MSU. This new residency fosters collaboration, exploration, experimentation, and innovation on MSU’s vibrant campus, culminating in the creation of groundbreaking artworks at the intersection of art, science and technology.
