50 Years of Beam
Oct 31, 2017Since 1967, the Cyclotron Institute has served as the core of Texas A&M's nuclear science program and as a major technical and educational resource for the state, nation and world. Join us in celebrating 50 years of beam in a three-day symposium dedicated to Texas A&M's past, present, and future of exploring the nuclear frontier.
All Eyes on Isotopes
Feb 22, 2017Scientists across Texas and the nation will convene in College Station March 9 to explore current and potential opportunities within two of Texas A&M's greatest resources for nuclear science research and education -- the Cyclotron Institute and the Nuclear Science Center -- as part of an isotope production workshop at the Cyclotron Institute.
Oganessian in Aggieland
Nov 14, 2016Russian scientist Yuri Oganessian, a Texas A&M Institute for Advanced Study (TIAS) Faculty Fellow and a Cyclotron Institute collaborator, came to Texas A&M earlier this month for a public lecture detailing his experience with element 118, officially named oganesson in his honor Nov. 30.
In His Element
Jun 16, 2016Russian physicist, Texas A&M University Institute for Advanced Study (TIAS) Faculty Fellow and Cyclotron Institute collaborator Yuri Oganessian helped to discover many super heavy elements. The heaviest one yet -- element 118, or "oganesson" -- is set to be named after him this fall.
Homing In on the Future
May 14, 2015Sometimes "ah-ha" moments can come at unexpected times. In Texas A&M senior physics major Layla Bakhtiari's case, a big one happened when she found career inspiration in a television show as an 11-year-old that led to a home as an undergraduate researcher in the world-renowned Texas A&M Cyclotron Institute.
Comet Watching in Aggieland
Mar 30, 2013Spring is in the air, and for several days just after sunset earlier in March, so was Comet PanSTARRS. Armed with viewing tips from Texas A&M astronomers, science enthusiasts across the Brazos Valley got a little more up close and personal with their night sky, as evidenced by the many great shots of the historic comet (including this one from Lake Bryan by Sid Ehlert) sent in to local media outlets and shared via social media.
Feb 28, 2013It was standing-room only last Saturday in the Stephen W. Hawking Auditorium, where Texas A&M astronomer Jennifer Marshall shared her knowledge of extra-terrestrial planets with area high school students participating in the National Science Foundation-funded Saturday Morning Physics (SMP) Program.
Jan 30, 2012In a non-descript building at the corner of University Drive and Spence Streets sits one of the hardest-working, unsung teaching and research heroes to be found on the entire 5,200-acre Texas A&M University campus. But don’t let the faded beige exterior of the Luedecke Cyclotron Institute Building fool you. Inside beats the heart of a […]
Feb 13, 2006Dr. Robert E. Tribble, professor of physics and director of Texas A&M University’s Cyclotron Institute, has been invited by the United States Secretary of Energy and the director of the National Science Foundation to serve a three-year term as chair of the Department of Energy/National Science Foundation Nuclear Science Advisory Committee. Established in 1977, the […]
Dec 09, 2003A senior engineer of the Radiation Effects & Analysis Group at Orbital, a division of NASA, sets up an experiment on the beam line to test its viability for use on a space project. The Radiation Effects Facility (REF), housed in the Cyclotron Institute at Texas A&M, is taking the original charge of the cyclotron […]
