Biography

Dr. Michael Syphers is the Research Professor, Department of Physics, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL , USA . Professor of Physics, NSCL and Department of Physics and Astronomy, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 2010-2015 Scientist, Accelerator Division, Fermilab, Batavia, IL 1985-89; 98-2010. NSCL has a long history of innovative advancements in accelerator science for use in nuclear physics. The latest in this line will be the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), presently in its early development, and scheduled to come on-line later this decade. Toward the goal of efficient acceleration of high intensity particle beams, at FRIB and other facilities as well, the Accelerator Science faculty at NSCL pursue studies in superconducting radio frequency accelerating devices, intense ion sources, high-efficiency large-scale cryogenic systems, beam instrumentation and diagnostics, and fundamental particle beam dynamics. Along with having major responsibilities for the specification of the FRIB accelerator design and oversight of its implementation, the faculty works with graduate students and post-docs on topics of academic interest in the accelerator field as well as the teaching of world-class courses in accelerator physics and engineering. The U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation have appointed Michael Syphers, a senior research professor of physics at NIU, to serve as a member of the national High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP).
