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.

[Translate to English:] Einen neuen Teilnahmerekord konnten GSI/FAIR im Jahr 2023 beim bundesweiten Aktionstag Girls’Day verzeichnen. Insgesamt nahmen 68 Mädchen im Alter zwischen elf und 15 Jahren an der Veranstaltung teil und informierten sich über die Beschleunigeranlagen und Experimente, über die Forschung und die Infrastruktur sowie insbesondere über das Berufsangebot bei GSI und FAIR. Das sind mehr als bei jeder anderen Girls’Day-Veranstaltung zuvor, die in Präsenz auf dem Campus…

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…

High-ranking visit on the FAIR/GSI campus in Darmstadt: The Indian Ambassador, H.E. Harish Parvathaneni, was recently a guest at FAIR/GSI. Together with the India Consul General Dr. Amit S Telang from Frankfurt and Science Attaché Dr. Madhusudan Nandineni from Berlin, he informed himself about the progress and perspectives of research at GSI and FAIR and took the opportunity to meet Indian students, researchers and scientists on site...

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.

Ring accelerator SIS18 at GSI/FAIR
Radiation therapy, manufacturing radiopharmaceuticals, developing and certifying drugs and designing energy-efficient semiconductors and new high-performance materials – these are just some of the different areas that are of great economic relevance. They are also areas in which accelerator-based technologies offer enormous advantages to research and development, in manufacturing and for quality control. However, at present the potential of such technologies is not being fully tapped outside the…

Participants of the conference in Aschaffenburg.
More than 300 researchers from around the world met in Aschaffenburg, Germany, March 27 to 31, 2023, for the "11th International Conference on Hard and Electromagnetic Probes of High-Energy Nuclear Collisions."

Ring accelerator SIS18
The EU-funded project HEARTS aims at providing access to high-energy heavy ion radiation testing facilities for both space exploitation and exploration. Two new radiation-testing facilities open to space applications, such is the promise of the HEARTS project. Started last January, this project will enable testing high-end microelectronics technology for novel space applications, as well as for shielding and radiobiology experiments that will foster human space exploration. GSI, as the most…
