MSU leads in world-class nuclear science research, graduate education

, MLIve

Michigan State University has the No. 1-ranked graduate program in nuclear physics, according to the U.S. News and World Report. That’s why the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science selected MSU to design, build and operate the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, which will be the world’s most advanced superconducting heavy-ion linear accelerator and our nation’s newest “discovery machine” when it becomes fully operational in 2022.

Events that will shape the next decade: What's ahead for Greater Lansing in 2020

, Lansing State Journal

More than 1,000 researchers from around the world will come to use Michigan State University's Facility for Rare Isotope Beams once it's finished in 2022. But first, they'll need to have their research work approved. That process will begin in the spring of 2020, when FRIB hosts a proposal preparation workshop.

Neutron dripline extended to fluorine and neon isotopes

, Physics World

The maximum number of neutrons that can be packed into fluorine and neon isotopes have been determined by nuclear physicists working on an experiment in Japan. These are the first new measurements of the neutron dripline in 20 years and could provide physicists with important information about how to model the atomic nucleus.
