Scientists from GSI are participants in one of the ten most important discoveries of 2016. A publication by a team of researchers led by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and including scientists and engineers from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM), and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) is among the most important breakthroughs in physics in 2016. The team’s work is featured as one of the “2016 Top Ten...

The third annual Matter and Technologies conference (“MT meeting”) is being held this week at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future accelerator center FAIR in Darmstadt. Around 180 scientists from all over Germany are attending the event. The Matter and Technologies program was established by the Helmholtz Association in order to emphasize and enhance the key role that technological development plays for accelerators and detectors, and consolidate it in a specific program....

The European framework COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) has decided to fund an Action for research on the evolution of the universe by studying the production of chemical elements in stars and stellar explosions. The Action called ChETEC (Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos) is currently supported by 44 proposers throughout 22 countries. Apart from main proposer professor Raphael Hirschi from Keele University in Great Britain also Gabriel Martinez...

Hadron physicist Klaus Peters is the new Spokesperson of the PANDA collaboration at FAIR, one of the four scientific pillars of the future accelerator center FAIR. He follows James Ritman (Universität Bochum/Forschungszentrum Jülich), who was PANDA Spokesperson 2013-2016. Deputy Spokesperson is now Tord Johansson (Universität Uppsala) as the successor of Diego Bettoni (Istituto Nationale die Fisica Nucleare INFN Ferrara).

At the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research was developed and tested a new method for a future treatment of cardiac arrhythmia. The research was carried by a team of biophysicists from GSI and physicians from Heidelberg University and the Mayo Clinic in the United States. Beams of carbon ions are already used successfully to treat tumors and could represent a non-invasive alternative to the present treatment with cardiac catheters or drugs.



"target" magazine issue 15
In the 15th issue of our "target" magazine we report the arrivial of new magnets for the FAIR ring accelerator as well as other components for FAIR. Also FAIR has been progressing concerning the calls for tender for the construction works, and we have presented the project on the real estate fair Expo Real. In research there has been news about the development of nuclear clocks and the spectroscopy of heavy elements. Our interview covers Janina Krieg's work about topologic isolators in materials...

Around 300 nuclear physicists from around the world are meeting in Darmstadt from January 11 to 13 for an international conference of the Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (NuPECC) — an expert committee of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The three-day event — known as a Town Meeting — has been organized by GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung. The purpose of the conference is to set the long-term course and lay out the Long Range Plan for the future of European...
