FRIB Civil Infrastructure

The FRIB Conventional Facilities Division Director directs the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of all aspects of FRIB civil construction activities.

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the Department of Energy Office of Science, Michigan State University and the State of Michigan. Located on campus and operated by MSU, FRIB will provide intense beams of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth). FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of these rare isotopes in order to better understand the physics of nuclei, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions and applications for society. Construction will begin in 2014 and continue until 2022.
