Resources for FRIB Scientific Users

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams has a number of resources available for FRIB scientific users, potential FRIB scientific users, and members of the FRIB Users Organization. The available resources include:


Code: The following code is available for researchers. Please visit the Beams page for additional information.

  • Beams: This page contains the LISE++ code (for estimating fragment transmission) and the LISE++ tutorial PDF (showing an example of developing a rare-isotope beam at FRIB).

Game: Isotopolis is a free game about FRIB, smashing virtual nuclei, and discovering new isotopes.

Videos: There are two versions of this FRIB informational video available online. For downloadable files, please contact FRIB Communications.

  • The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at MSU: This is the full video created by MSU that explains FRIB to a general audience. It is available on YouTube.

  • FRIB animation: This is the animated segment of the above video that shows how the linear accelerator will produce rare isotopes. It is available on YouTube.

Laboratory access for scientific users: This page contains information about laboratory access for scientific users. Information includes on-campus accommodations and local hotels.
