Ben Arend, National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) mechanical design staff engineer, installs a detector in a compact and functionally enhanced focal plane box during the summer 2007 reconfiguration of the NSCL's experimental area. The equipment in the box will optimize the beam of isotopes for experiments performed downstream.

Laura Saxton, NSCL accelerator engineer, tests a multi-cell superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavity prototype designed and built by NSCL staff as part of the development for the Proton Driver linear accelerator for Fermilab. When a current project to build a new low-energy linear accelerator is completed July 2010, NSCL will be able to produce reaccelerated beams of rare isotopes not accessible at any other facilities in the world.

The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing. One of the nation's flagship nuclear science facilities, NSCL is the largest university-based rare isotope research laboratory in the United States. Michigan State University trains 10 percent of all U.S. nuclear science doctoral students and has the No. 2 graduate program in the field after MIT, according to U.S. News & World Report.
