The FAIR news are kindly hosted by GSI.

Two lectures will shed light on cosmic processes such as supernovae and neutron star mergers.
The program of the “Wissenschaft für Alle” lecture series of GSI and FAIR will continue in the first half of 2024 to offer the audience an insight into the newest findings in physics. Interested parties can either attend the event in the lecture hall of GSI/FAIR following a registration or dial into the broadcast of the event via video conference using an internet-enabled device such as a laptop, cell phone or tablet. The program will begin on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, with a talk by Dr. Haik…



Group picture of the workshop participants at the Serial Test Facility (STF).
"Superconductivity and Sustainability" was the motto of a future-oriented workshop held jointly by the GSI SIS100/SIS18 department, headed by Dr. Peter Spiller, and the European superconducting industry association "CONECTUS", chaired by Wolfgang Walter from Bilfinger Noell. The aim of the workshop was to improve communication between the particle accelerator community and the superconducting industry and to present the latest developments in both areas. Numerous well-known European companies…



The GSI/FAIR calendar 2024
The useful year planner has enjoyed great popularity for many years. It lists all public and school holidays. It offers a good overview of the year and is a useful planning aid for many people.



New building at the Helmholtz Institute Jena.
The new research building of the Helmholtz Institute Jena has been decorated with an architectural award: The office "Osterwold°Schmidt EXP!ANDER Architekten" from Weimar was honored with the "best architects award 24" for the new building, which was opened last winter. The "best architects award" is one of the most prestigious architectural awards in Europe and is considered a seal of quality for outstanding architectural achievement.



An artist's rendition of the scandium nuclear clock:
An international research team has taken a decisive step toward a new generation of atomic clocks. At the European XFEL X-ray laser, the researchers have created a much more precise pulse generator based on the element scandium, which enables an accuracy of one second in 300 billion years – that is about a thousand times more precise than the current standard atomic clock based on caesium. The team, which includes scientists from the Helmholtz Institute Jena, a branch of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum…



Heavy-ion synchrotron SIS18 exterior view
Two of Europe's leading centers for the study and application of heavy particles in oncology will partner in the “CROSS” project to investigate for the first time in living organisms whether the sequence of carbon ions followed by photons is more effective in treating radioresistant tumors than the reverse order of irradiation. The study is part of a long-standing collaboration in which the National Center for Oncological Hadron Therapy CNAO in Pavia and the GSI Helmholtzzentrum ....



AISTAR 2023
In collaboration with GSI/FAIR and the Technical University of Darmstadt, the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) recently hosted the second edition of the Artificial Intelligence Symposium on Technology, Applications, and Research (AISTAR). The collaborative effort exemplified the spirit of mutual interest and strong partnerships in the pursuit of cutting-edge AI research. The symposium created a space for connecting, networking, and exchanging ideas, facilitating new contacts and…



Group photo of the participants of Saturday Morning Physics 2023
On Saturday, December 2, around 120 high-school students from all over Hesse visited the GSI/FAIR campus as part of the “Saturday Morning Physics” lecture series – for the first time on site again since the corona pandemic. In tours of the research facilities, the students gained exciting insights into current physics research, explored the existing GSI particle accelerators, experiments and infrastructure facilities and were informed about the construction of the international accelerator…
