# Jerry Nolen

Jerry Nolen was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at Princeton University, where he earned his Ph.D. in nuclear physics. He was previously an Associate Director of the MSU National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory and is presently a Distinguished Fellow in the Physics Division of Argonne National Laboratory. His current research is in the field of radioactive beams, which involves high-power, heavy-ion superconducting linacs, high power density production targets and strippers, large-scale electromagnetic separators, and other beam-optical instruments. He was a pioneer in the development of superconducting beam transport and magnetic spectrographs including the NSCL S800 and the GANIL ${\text{S}}^{3}$.
