Welcome to the website for the Users Organization of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams [FRIB].

FRIB will be a cutting-edge research facility to advance understanding of rare nuclear isotopes and the evolution of the cosmos. The new facility -- baselined at $730 with a completion date of June 2022-- will provide research opportunities with rare isotopes for an international community of over 1300 scientists from universities and national laboratories, postdoctoral research associates, and graduate students. This User community will develop and implement the physics program at FRIB and construct equipment to be used at this next-generation rare isotope beam facility. This website is established to serve this User Community.

Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing, Michigan, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to design and establish FRIB. The planned national user facility will provide research opportunities with fast, stopped, and reaccelerated beams of rare isotopes and will adjoin the current MSU National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory. You can learn more about FRIB from the FRIB Information link on this site and also from the FRIB project website at http://www.frib.msu.edu. Be sure to browse through the wide variety of Working Groups covering the spectrum of physics and devices envisioned for FRIB.
