40 Years of Science at NSCL (12 August 2022)

On 12 August 2022, the FRIB Laboratory held a special event titled “40 Years of Science at NSCL” to recognize all the contributions that led to successful operation of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) as a National Science Foundation (NSF) user facility for four decades and celebrate the scientific accomplishments. At the end of May, the final NSCL experiment completed, nearly 40 years after the first NSCL experiment in September 1982.   

Approximately 400 guests—including officials from Michigan State University (MSU), NSF, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), former NSCL staff and students, and MSU faculty—attended the event (either in person or remotely) to celebrate NSCL. Activities included facility tours, gatherings in the atrium and public spaces, and a special lunch before the official program.
