Michigan State's FRIB dazzles scientists with rare isotopes that open new research pathways

, Lansing State Journal

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University has been open for less than a year, but it already has given birth to more than 100 rare isotopes. At FRIB, new isotopes allow for experiments to help scientists make potentially world-changing discoveries as they better understand the universe around us.

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) posted a highlight titled “Deblurring Can Reveal 3D Features of Heavy-Ion Collisions” about the FRIB research paper titled “Deblurring for Nuclei: 3D Characteristics of Heavy-Ion Collisions” published in Physical Review Letters. DOE-SC posts about 200 published research findings annually, selected by their respective program areas in DOE-SC as publication highlights of special note.

Growing vital talent and innovation for Michigan industries

, MSUToday

Michigan State University (MSU) is growing and evolving high-profile facilities and partnerships to keep pace with industry needs, from the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams—the preeminent user facility of its kind in the world, which recently announced its involvement in a new space electronics testing center—to MSU and Apple’s first U.S. Developer Academy in Detroit to MSU’s many industry collaborations that are reinventing the future of mobility in Michigan and beyond.

Half-lives of rare isotopes revealed

, Chemical & Engineering News

Scientists have measured the half-lives of five never-before-seen isotopes in a first demonstration of a research facility that will help probe the nuclear structures of elements. The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University allows scientists to study the so-called drip line, the point at which no more neutrons can be added to an atomic nucleus.
