The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) is being designed and established by Michigan State University as a DOE Office of Science (DOE-SC) scientific user facility supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics in DOE-SC. Over 90% complete, FRIB will enable world-leading research opportunities with rare isotopes in nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, and the application of rare isotopes for society. FRIB is centered on a superconducting radio-frequency linear accelerator, operating at 2 K and capable of delivering 400 kW of beam power, and a fragment separator consisting of superconducting magnets capable of selecting and identifying 1 in 1018 rare isotopes. This presentation reviews the physics motivation for FRIB, the project’s status, the major technical challenges, and some of the strategic choices supporting delivery of the project baseline with a high likelihood of success.
