National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL)

The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) is located on the campus of Michigan State University and is the leading rare isotope research facility in the United States. The NSCL is a national user facility with the mission to allow scientists from all over the world to make scientific discoveries about the inner workings of atoms and their role in the universe. Nearly 1000 scientists per year benefit from their unique capabilities to produce forms of the elements not normally found on Earth, called rare isotopes. For use in research, rare isotopes must be produced with a particle accelerator like the NSCL’s cyclotrons.
