From Education Week: Hidden Gems for Helping Science Educators

"Seeking to extend learning beyond the classroom can be challenging, but this is where local universities and labs can step in," ...

From the CERN Courier: Cyclotron lab reconfigures for better service

"Following a summer shutdown, the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at Michigan State University is looking ahead to new experiments with fast and reaccelerated beams,"...

From the journal Nature: Three first-ever isotopes created at NSCL; additional super-heavy aluminum nuclei may exist

Researchers at Michigan State University’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, NSCL, have created three never-before-observed isotopes of magnesium and aluminum. The results not only stake out new...

From LiveScience: Nuclear Physics Boot Camp Preps Future Scientists

"The metamorphosis of a student into a full-fledged scientist takes years, but the Exotic Beam Summer School helps accelerate—so to speak—the process," writes Annie Jia in an October article for LiveScience. "...

From symmetry Magazine: Raising MoNA

Operated by a collaboration of NSCL users, the modular neutron array (MoNA) can measure both the speed and direction of neutrons after a rare isotope beam strikes the target. MoNA collaborators, including many...

A User's Perspective: Bill Walters, University of Maryland

"I was a member of the NSCL Users Executive Committee (UEC) for three years and served as UEC chair in 2006. It was an exciting time as the full operation of the Coupled Cyclotron Facility ramped up to approximately...

From the October CERN Courier: Fast fragmentation produces double firsts for exotic nuclei

"Researchers at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at Michigan State University have made new observations in different regions of the isotopic landscape by examining the nuclear structure of...

Audio interview: Remco Zegers, NSCL assistant professor

"The main focus of the paper is on using the (3He, t) reaction to study the spin-isospin response of nuclei," says Remco Zegers, NSCL assistant professor, of his research appearing in the Nov. 16...

Nuclear physicists examine oxygen’s limits

Physicists at NSCL have made a unique measurement of an exotic oxygen nucleus, leading scientists one step closer to deciphering the behavior of the element at its limits of existence.

The finding, published...

From the Sept. 13 Lansing State Journal: Cyclotron Evolves

"The construction project, which stopped research at the lab all summer, is the largest at the rare isotope research facility in nearly a decade," writes Lansing State Journal reporter Matthew Miller, "and the...
