An international research team has for the first time at ISOLDE, the Isotope Separator On Line Device at CERN, succeeded in creating six chromium isotopes and measuring their masses up to 300 times more precisely than ever before using the ISOLTRAP ion trap. The ISOLTRAP experiment was largely constructed by scientists from GSI and has been constantly supported by significant contributions from GSI since that time. The new measurement results have enabled scientist to make the first-ever...

Jörg-Uwe Hahn, member of the FDP fraction of the Hessian Parliament, recently visited FAIR and GSI. The politician and former Hessian Minister of Justice informed himself about current research and the progress of the FAIR construction project, one of the largest research projects for cutting-edge research worldwide. Jörg-Uwe Hahn, who came to the campus together with party colleague Dr. Dierk Molter, honorary city councillor in Darmstadt, was received by the Scientific Managing Director...

36 students from 24 countries take part in this year’s Summer Student Program at GSI and FAIR. During their eight-weeks stay on the campus they participate actively in GSI and FAIR science projects, get to know the experiments and the research areas and get involved in the everyday working life at an accelerator institute.

Complex processes take place on the microphysical level when a star explodes and becomes a neutron star. According to the latest findings the role of muons in these supernovas must be reconsidered. The muons — elementary particles that were previously neglected — have an effect on the speed of the contraction to form the neutron star. Thus they also affect the neutrino-driven explosion mechanism. The findings were made by scientists from GSI and FAIR, TU Darmstadt, the Max Planck Institute for...
