National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory


MSU's National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) is a national user facility devoted to basic research in nuclear science as well as accelerator and instrumentation research and development. Historically, the NSCL has played a key role in the scientific and technical education of a large number of young scientists and engineers in undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral programs. The NSCL plays an important role in pre-college and community education with programs such as a summer intern program for middle and high school teachers and guided tours of the facility to interested groups. The NSCL also has a number of research activities including research of nuclear structure and reactions; nuclear astrophysics; the Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA) Project; and accelerator design and beam physics.
