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…

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…

The digital twin of DC Smarter will be used in the high-performance cumpting center Green IT Cube in the future.
DC Smarter and GSI concluded a future-oriented cooperation agreement: The German IT company is the first industrial partner to move into the Digital Open Lab at the high-performance computing center Green IT Cube of GSI/FAIR, where it will make its DC Vision® solution available. By combining a digital twin with augmented reality, the software optimizes key data center tasks such as remote hands services, documentation management and visual inspections.

Simulation of liver treatment produced with software MatRad.
On site at GSI/FAIR, 24 interested high-school students were given the opportunity to learn more about tumor therapy with ion beams during a Masterclass in March. The event was hosted by scientists of the Biophysics research department at GSI/FAIR. All Particle Therapy Masterclasses (PTMCs) are coordinated by GSI/FAIR in the framework of the International Masterclasses of the IPPOG (International Particle Physics Outreach Group), of which GSI is an associate member.

The workshop participants
Increasing the safety of astronauts in space and advancing modern research for the benefit of mankind: These goals are the focus of the successful cooperation between the European Space Agency ESA and GSI/FAIR in several research projects. GSI/FAIR is the European facility selected by ESA to study cosmic radiation and its effects on humans, electronics and materials. This includes the research program for "Investigations into Biological and Physical Effects of Radiation (IBPER)", which is…

Participants of the European Cryogenics Days 2023
On two days in March, the European Cryogenics Days (ECD) took place at the GSI/FAIR campus in Darmstadt. The international conference focuses on all topics related to cryogenics, from giant cryogenics applications such as the superconducting FAIR accelerator to hydrogen mobility and lowest temperatures on the tiny scales of cells. Co-hosted by the Cryogenics Society of Europe, the ECDs have been held regularly at various research institutions in Europe since 2015.
