Award ceremony
During their recent meeting, the PANDA Collaboration has announced for the third time its PANDA Theory PhD Prize. Every other year outstanding PhD theses of young scientists are honored with this prize. The year 2022 prize was handed over to Dr. Bai-Long Hoid for his PhD thesis “Taming Hadronic Effects at the Precision Frontier: From the Muon Anomaly to Rare Decays” by Professor Ulrich Wiedner, spokesperson of the PANDA Collaboration, Professor Karin Schönning, deputy spokesperson, and ...

Visit to the WASA experiment
[Translate to English:] Vor Kurzem hatte GSI/FAIR die Ehre, eine japanische Delegation unter Führung von Dr. Keitaro Ohno, dem Staatsminister für Kabinettsangelegenheiten, zu empfangen. Die Gäste besuchten GSI/FAIR, um sich über die Forschung auf dem Campus, die von japanischen Forschenden geleiteten Experimente und das Bauprojekt für den internationalen Teilchenbeschleuniger FAIR zu informieren. Des Weiteren nahmen sie an der Unterzeichnung einer Zusammenarbeitsvereinbarung (Memorandum of…

Setup for a FLASH experiment at GSI/FAIR: A high dose of radiation is applied in ultra-short time of about 100 ms.
It is an important step to extend future treatment methods in the fight against cancer: The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (THM) and Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company from Palo Alto, California, intend to jointly advance medical-technical developments in the field of FLASH therapy and further pave the way to clinical application. To this purpose, an agreement was concluded among the three collaborators.

An agreement for two new dual study programs has been signed with the Worms University for Applied Sciences.
The newly concluded cooperation agreement between the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the Worms University of Applied Sciences opens up two new branches of cooperation. Opportunities for innovation through cooperative collaboration have been identified for both the Business Computing and the Logistics Management degree programs.

Neutron stars and particle tracks
An international research team, including researchers from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, has for the first time combined data from heavy-ion experiments, gravitational wave measurements and other astronomical observations using advanced theoretical modelling to more precisely constrain the properties of nuclear matter as it can be found in the interior of neutron stars. The results were published in the journal “Nature”.

A new partnership agreement was signed with the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee.
A Memorandum of Understanding and a GET_INvolved Partnership agreement which focuses on mobility and capacity building were executed between Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee India and GSI/FAIR Darmstadt Germany. The proposed trilateral agreement will enable internship, training and research programs between GSI/FAIR and IIT Roorkee, envisioned to create opportunities for collaborations between the institutes. FAIR is one of the largest research projects worldwide, being built at the GSI…

Mainz-based setup of the GNOME Network
For the first time, comprehensive data on the search for dark matter using a global network of optical magnetometers has been published by an international group of scientists with key participation from the PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM). According to the scientists, dark matter fields should produce a characteristic signal pattern that can be detected by correlated measurements at multiple stations of the GNOME…
