Ring accelerator SIS18 at GSI/FAIR
Radiation therapy, manufacturing radiopharmaceuticals, developing and certifying drugs and designing energy-efficient semiconductors and new high-performance materials – these are just some of the different areas that are of great economic relevance. They are also areas in which accelerator-based technologies offer enormous advantages to research and development, in manufacturing and for quality control. However, at present the potential of such technologies is not being fully tapped outside the…

Participants of the conference in Aschaffenburg.
More than 300 researchers from around the world met in Aschaffenburg, Germany, March 27 to 31, 2023, for the "11th International Conference on Hard and Electromagnetic Probes of High-Energy Nuclear Collisions."

Ring accelerator SIS18
The EU-funded project HEARTS aims at providing access to high-energy heavy ion radiation testing facilities for both space exploitation and exploration. Two new radiation-testing facilities open to space applications, such is the promise of the HEARTS project. Started last January, this project will enable testing high-end microelectronics technology for novel space applications, as well as for shielding and radiobiology experiments that will foster human space exploration. GSI, as the most…

Following a special meeting (March 9/10), the shareholders of FAIR GmbH today decided on the progress of the FAIR project. Due to the excellent evaluation in the scientific review of the FAIR project, the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Hesse are willing to finance the first construction stage 'First Science' with a supplementary sum of approximately 518 million euros. This means that the foreseen total budget available for the scenario will be approximately 3.3 billion euros.
