The Department of Physics will host an open house for the Nuclear Science Laboratory on Saturday, November 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m in 124 Nieuwland Science Hall. The open house is free and open to the public. Tours will leave every 15 minutes from room 124.
Faculty and students from the Nuclear Science Laboratory will lead guests on guided tours through the lab, including the new vertical accelerator, which is a 10-ton unit that spans five stories. The accelerator was installed this spring based on a $3.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation. This was the first university-based accelerator in the United States to be funded by the NSF in nearly 30 years.
