It could become a powerful weapon in the fight against cancer and open up completely new possibilities for tumor therapy with charged particles. FLASH irradiation – the application of an ultra-high radiation dose in a very short time – is in strong focus worldwide and is being advanced with high expertise at GSI and FAIR. FLASH clinical implementation is one of the top 10 Breakthroughs of the Year 2022 according to “Physics Word”. In its December issue, the world’s leading high-impact journal…

"Longterm Dronelapse 2018-2021" wins first place in the "Hyperlapse" category at the Brazilian film festival "NO AR Drone Film Fest".

"Pilars of Creation" recorded with the JWST
The lecture program of the series “Wissenschaft für Alle” by GSI and FAIR will continue in the first half of 2023. This time, the lectures will be about the limits of physics — both about exploring them and going beyond them. 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 ...

At the PHELIX laser at GSI/FAIR, fundamental experiments on fusion take place.
The Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) congratulates our colleagues at the National Ignition Facility for the breakthrough in Inertial Confinement Fusion research.

Interior of a new UNILAC buncher
Two radio-frequency buncher cavities for GSI/FAIR's UNILAC linear accelerator have recently been delivered. They are used to shape the ion beams during transfer to the poststripper section (Alvarez structure) and are essential for longitudinal matching to achieve low-loss acceleration and good beam quality, especially at high intensities. The two bunchers, with operating frequencies of 36 and 108 MHz, are intended to replace the existing devices, which have been in operation for about 25 years,…

Prof. Dr. Hannah Elfner
GSI scientist Prof. Dr. Hannah Elfner is appointed Senior Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS). She made it into this highest category at the theoretical research institute FIAS - comparable to a W3 professorship at the university.

Radon chamber at GSI.
Anti-inflammatory, therapeutic effects, but also risks - the radioactive noble gas radon contains both at the same time. Radon and especially its short-living progeny are considered to be responsible for about half of the annual radiation exposure from natural sources and are classified as carcinogenic. Researchers from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung now have proven in a paper published in the “International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health” that face…

Measurement setup SHIPTRAP for research on the physics of superheavy elements
In a review article in the diamond jubilee issue of the journal “Radiochimica Acta”, researchers from GSI/FAIR, the Helmholtz Institute Mainz, and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz report on highlights of the research on superheavy elements (SHE) carried out at GSI over the past five decades. The article focuses on the discovery of the “superheavies” and on chemical studies addressing the placement of the new, heaviest elements in the periodic table of elements.

Prof. Hans-Jürgen Wollersheim
Professor Hans-Jürgen Wollersheim has been awarded an adjunct professorship at the University of Delhi for his many years of cooperation with Indian scientists. Since 2004, the GSI researcher has engaged in intensive scientific cooperation with India and was the liaison person for the cooperation with India in the FAIR project as In-Kind Coordinator FAIR@GSI.
