The Nuclear Physics program at the MSU Department of Physics and Astronomy centers on the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) and its new extension, the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). Both are in a building complex here at Michigan State University (MSU) just to the east of the Biomedical and Physical Sciences Building, which houses most of the rest of the department.
Areas of research into nuclear physics, along with their associated web areas, include the following.
