Current developments and new strategies for future data center operations were the focus of the Data Center Expert Summit 2022, the expert conference for data centers in Germany, held recently at GSI/FAIR. It was organized by the eco Association of the Internet Industry in cooperation with GSI/FAIR's Technology Transfer Department. The event was also attended by the State Secretary in the Hessian Ministry for Digital Strategy and Development and CIO of the Federal State of Hesse, Patrick…

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…
