Photomontage of the future FAIR facility.
At July, 1, there is a change in the management of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH and the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe GmbH (FAIR GmbH). The current Administrative Director Dr Ulrich Breuer has accepted the offer of Goethe University Frankfurt to take over the office of Chancellor. The continuation of the current administrative business at GSI and FAIR is temporarily taken over by the Head of Controlling at GSI and FAIR, Markus Jaeger. The decision…

For five years now, the progress of the FAIR construction site has been documented by drone videos. A new compilation shows the development from 2018 to 2023 - starting with excavation and civil engineering up to the start of the technical building equipment. Thanks to the award-winning filming technique, a Longterm Dronelapse is created in which the individually filmed time-lapse videos are precisely superimposed and combined into a single video.

Some of the FAIR and GSI delegates at the FAIR stand
FAIR and GSI scientists continue to contribute to world-class accelerator science research. With 45 scientific contributions and 39 delegates to the 14th International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC) in Venice, GSI and FAIR emphasized new discoveries in accelerator physics as well as the opportunities the FAIR mega-project offers researchers, industry, students and transfer partners. The worldwide central IPAC'23, well attended with 1600 participants, could be held on-site for the first…

High-performance computing center Green IT Cube of GSI/FAIR
Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, High Performance Computing and Advanced Digital Tools: The fields in which companies and the public sector in Hesse need to take action in the digital transformation are diverse and complex. EDITH now offers the best possible support. The mission of the Digital Innovation Hub is to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), startups and municipalities in southern Hesse, including the Frankfurt/Rhine-Main metropolitan region, in implementing their…

Readout chip PADI-X ASIC
The recent launch of ESA's Juice spacecraft marked the beginning of an ambitious journey that aims to explore the mysteries of Jupiter's icy moons. It will be eight years on the road, traveling billions of kilometers along the way, and is designed to find out whether conditions for life could exist on Jupiter's moons. A cutting-edge high-tech development from GSI and FAIR is also on board during this unique research expedition.

Awarding of the prize to Dr. Francesca Luoni by Matthias W. Send, Chairman Board of the Vereinigung von Freunden der Technischen Universität zu Darmstadtb e.V.
Dr. Francesca Luoni from the GSI Department of Biophysics was honored with the “Prize for outstanding scientific achievements” of the association “Freunde der Technische Universität zu Darmstadt e.V.”. She received the award for her PhD thesis on “Radiation Shielding during Deep-Space Missions: Dose Measurements, Monte Carlo Simulations, and Nuclear Cross-Sections”. The award ceremony took place at the spring festival of the TU Friends in the guest house of the TU Darmstadt.

GSI and FAIR invite to Open House
How are the building blocks of our life created? What weapons can help humanity in the fight against cancer? What are planets composed of in their innermost core? What is currently happening on the construction site for one of the world's largest research projects? Answers to these and many other exciting questions can be found at the Open House, to which the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future accelerator center FAIR invite on Saturday, 15 July 2023, from 10 a.m. to 4…

Group photo with all participants at the Satellite event in Egelsbach.
The two days France@FAIR event emphasized international collaboration in research and innovation, with insights shared on the FAIR mega science project and current opportunities. The successful event included a tour of the civil construction site, presentations by directors, and a satellite event attended by passionate scientists and French companies.

Starting point of the PHELIX laser at GSI/FAIR
The THRILL (Technology for High-Repetition-rate Intense Laser Laboratories) project received more than ten million euro of funding in the framework of the European Union’s HORIZON EUROPE program. The project aims at providing new designs and high-performance components for high-energy high-repetition-rate lasers, enabling the technical readiness level required to specify and build the needed devices. This work improves the performance, the energy efficiency and reliability in operation of such…
