[Chem Logo icon]Nuclear Chemistry at Michigan State University 

Many opportunities exist for graduate education and post-doctoral research in nuclear chemistry.

Research is primarily carried out at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL), a modern laboratory exploiting superconducting technology that is located next to the Chemistry Building, right on campus.

The NSCL is funded by the National Science Foundation to operate the Coupled Cyclotron Facility, along with the projectile-fragment separator.   This combination can provide beams of the most exotic nuclei

Ph.D. projects range from the production and decay properties of the most exotic nuclei (drip-line nuclei), study of the nuclear matter equation of state through heavy-ion reactions, measurement of nuclear magnetic moments and the production of spin polarized nuclei, to spectroscopy and nuclear structure of odd-odd nuclei.
