Our now published issue No. 19 of our GSI/FAIR magazine "target" shows the diversity of our scientific work. Research on tumor therapy, superheavy elements, black holes and exotic nuclear states in collaboration with many partner institutions is expanding our knowledge of our world and our cosmos true to our motto: the universe in the laboratory.
The Facility of Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe GmbH (FAIR) hosted Industrial Liaison Officers (ILOs) from its partner countries on March 15th. The meeting provided the participating ILOs with the opportunity to get the latest update on topics related to the FAIR project, including progress on FAIR subprojects, and as well significant information about procurement and in-kind contributions. They also received informed about the other networking platforms and events, taking place in…
A team of international researchers, including Professor Almudena Arcones from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and TU Darmstadt and Dr. Marius Eichler, went back to the formation of our Solar System, 4.6 billion years ago, and gained new insights into the cosmic origin of the heaviest elements on the periodic table, as reported in a study published in the journal Science.
Recently, the annual meeting of the FAIR-GSI Exotic Nuclei Community (GENCO) took place via videoconference. Part of the event — as every year — was the presentation of the Young Scientist Award as well as the admission of new members. The special colloquium "Ode to projectile fragmentation" was given by Professor Marek Pfuetzner from the University of Warsaw.
Each year, the European Research Council (ERC) awards several extremely prestigious research funding prizes for cutting-edge research. The outstanding quality of scientific research at GSI and FAIR was directly recognized last year with two "ERC Advanced Grants" for GSI physicists Marco Durante and Gabriel Martínez-Pinedo. In addition, GSI and FAIR also attract ERC grant laureates from other research institutions who are closely connected to GSI/FAIR through their specialist topics or who…
About 220 experts from all over the world participated in the "PHEDM-Hirschegg Workshop 2021": With the new meeting format as an online event, the organizers were able to make accessible the five-day meeting to a large number of participants and at the same time take the corona situation into account.
The Hessian state government is supporting cutting-edge research in Hesse with almost 40 million euros over a period of four years. Six projects of the universities in Darmstadt, Frankfurt, Giessen and Marburg together with further universities and non-university research institutions will be supported in the funding line "Cluster Projects" launched by the state from April 2021. In this way, the state is strengthening the research areas that shape the profile of Hessen's universities, including…
The developments for PANDA, one of the key experiments of the future accelerator center FAIR, are progressing steadily. Another important stage has now been reached: The yoke of the PANDA solenoid magnet was fully assembled at the steel construction company SET in Novosibirsk. The final tests of doors were done recently.
Several GSI/FAIR research areas receive EU funding in the millions. Four planned infrastructure projects in the fields of tumor therapy with heavy ions, innovative methods for industrial radiation testing and new technology developments for accelerator facilities were successful in current EU tenders and have received funding commitments. FAIR and GSI play a decisive role in each of these projects, which are carried out in international collaborations.
