It is a spectacular low temperature: A research team headed by Robert Grisenti from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung has successfully detected liquid water at a temperature far below the freezing point: -42.6 degrees Celsius. This discovery is the result of development work on experiments for the future accelerator center FAIR, but it could also enable us to make great progress in our understanding of the earth’s climate.

One of the key questions that need to be addressed regarding the future of human spaceflight as well as robotic exploration programs is how cosmic radiation affects human beings, electronics, and materials. The detailed investigation of this topic is one of the main tasks that must be accomplished in order to provide astronauts and space systems with effective protection. To achieve this goal, the European Space Agency (ESA) will be cooperating closely in the future with the international...

Perspectives and opportunities for future cooperation were the focus of a visit by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Director of FAIR and GSI, to the Republic of Azerbaijan. The aim is to intensify the scientific exchange between German and Azerbaijani researchers. In order to promote scientific and technological cooperation between FAIR and Azerbaijani research institutions, a “Memorandum of Understanding“ (MoU) has now been signed in the capital Baku on the Caspian Sea.

Class 5 Photonics, a spin-off from Helmholtz-Institut Jena, a branch of GSI, and from Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY specialized in high-performance laser technology, is the proud winner of the PRISM AWARDS 2018 in the category lasers. SuperNova OPCPA is the Class 5 Photonics flagship product, which took the trophy home. The SuperNova OPCPA enables researchers to perform experiments ten times faster than with conventional lasers. “We are delighted to win this prestigious award and...

Professor Yves Bréchet, the High-Commissioner for Atomic Energy, visited the FAIR and GSI research facilities in January. In an introductory talk he was informed by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, about the on-going research activities at the existing facility and the planning of the FAIR project.

In the 16th issue of our magazine "target" we report the groundbreaking for FAIR as well as our Open House which enabled approx. 11,000 visitors to gain insight into our research. The detection of heavy elements in a merger of neutron stars has confirmed important predictions of our scientists. And you learn more about the work of our Technology Transfer who aims to convey utilizable developments from research into industry.

A group of scientists from GSI, FIAS and the university Frankfurt used deep learning techniques to develop a tool for better understanding heavy ion collisions. The present study is a proof of principle study where Long-Gang Pang, Kai Zhou, Nan Su, Hannah Petersen, Horst Stöcker, former Scientific Director of GSI, and Xin-Nian Wang (University of California in Berkeley, USA) used more than 20,000 pictures from relativistic hydrodynamic simulations of heavy ion collisions, as they also occour in...

The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future particle accelerator center FAIR will present cutting-edge research in the area of particle acceleration physics at the “Wissenswerte” (Worth Knowing) dialogue-oriented forum, which will be held at the Darmstadtium congress center in Darmstadt from December 4 to 6. Several hundred specialized journalists, science communicators, and researchers will attend the forum, which is Germany’s most important conference for science...

It is a success story with tradition and at the same time an anniversary: On Saturday, 25 November, for the 20th time 260 high-school students from all over the state of Hesse had the opportunity to gain an insight into current physical research at FAIR and GSI. During tours of the research facilities they explored the accelerators and experiments on the GSI and FAIR campus and learned about the construction of the international FAIR facility. At the beginning they joined for a traditional small...
