Our Sections

Our Sections

There are 16 Physics Sections of NSBP. These sections help plan symposia at our annual conference as well as other meetings, workshops, and mini-courses. They help keep the general membership aware of new and ongoing funding for research and training in the respective sub-fields. Each section is a forum for networking and information exchanges including student advising and mentoring as well as research collaboration.

    FRIB

    The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will be a scientific user facility for the Office of Nuclear Physics in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC). FRIB is funded by the DOE-SC, MSU and the State of Michigan. Supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics in DOE-SC, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth), nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security, and industry.
