Although this campaign has concluded, it's easy to give to Ohio University and support the Distinguished Professor J. Rapaport Endowment for the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics Fund.
Nuclear physics at Ohio University was started in 1962 with the hiring of Professor Roger Finlay
It's been a half-century of discovery at the Edwards Accelerator Laboratory with first design-voltage operations in 1971
This gift level recognizes that the initial research program utilized a small 150-kV Cockroft-Walton accelerator for generating neutrons
This gift level recognizes the 4.5-MV tandem accelerator which was funded by a $1M grant awarded by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission to Ohio U in 1967
The accelerator itself took 18 months to manufacture and over 10 months to install, with the first experiments starting in 1971
