Successful signing of the contract
GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH ("GSI") and NDC-GARBE Data Centers Europe GmbH ("NDC-GARBE") have signed a cooperation agreement. Back in 2020, NDC-GARBE had acquired the Intellectual Property (IP) and patents for the construction of sustainable data centers based on the Cube concept from GSI and Goethe University Frankfurt. The subject of this newly concluded cooperation agreement is the use, further development and marketing of the Cube concept, in particular the…

Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Langanke
It is a great honor for a renowned research personality and at the same time a recognition of the outstanding quality of science at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future accelerator center FAIR: The theoretical nuclear astrophysicist Professor Karlheinz Langanke has been appointed honorary member by the European Physical Society (EPS). This honor is bestowed on only a few scientists worldwide, as the list of EPS honorary members never exceeds 30 living persons. At its…

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.

View into the target chamber of the PHELIX laser
The French research organization CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and three research centers of the Helmholtz Association, among them GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, have joined forces to form the Dark Matter Lab (DMLab), an international research laboratory (IRL) dedicated to the study of dark matter. The DMLab is coordinated on the German side by DESY.
