The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University has issued its second call for proposals. The FRIB science program commenced in May 2022, delivering successful experiments approved in the first call for proposals. The second call invites scientific users the world over to submit proposals for additional research and new ideas using FRIB capabilities.
With this call, FRIB invites proposals for beam time to be considered at the second FRIB Program Advisory Committee’s (PAC2) meeting scheduled for 1-3 March 2023. The PAC is a group of international experts who review proposals for non-proprietary beam time requests submitted to FRIB. The PAC makes recommendations to the FRIB Laboratory Director about beam-time allocation.
FRIB is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) user facility, supporting the mission of the DOE-SC Office of Nuclear Physics. FRIB open to all interested researchers, and beam time is granted based on a merit review of proposals. There is no charge for users who are doing non-proprietary work, with the understanding that they are expected to publish their results. Full cost recovery is required for proprietary work.
