As of this month, the high-performance laser PHELIX at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt will have been in operation for ten years. At PHELIX, scientists from around the world have the unique opportunity to conduct experiments that combine laser beams and ion beams produced in the existing accelerator facility. This makes it possible to study extreme states of matter, such as those that occur in stars or inside large planets.

How can large, complex projects be efficiently managed? What will project management be like in the future? These were some of the key questions that were addressed at the spring conference of the Deutscher Verband der Projektmanager in der Bau- und Immobilienwirtschaft (German Association of Project Managers in the Construction and Real Estate Business/DVP) in Frankfurt on April 20, 2018. The event, which was devoted to the theme “Project management 2020 — methodological expertise and...

Colliding nuclei can fuse and form a new nucleus. Sometimes this fusion is temporary – the newly formed nucleus is in an excited state and decays after a short period of time into a stable state or falls apart. Such a short-lived nucleus is called a pre-compound. In a publication of the journal Physical Review C the two scientists Dr. Bastian Schütrumpf from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and Dr. Witold Nazarewicz from the Michigan State University, USA, take a closer look at the...

On Thursday, 26 April 2018, a total of 43 schoolgirls– an unprecedented number – from grades 5 through 9 had the opportunity to find out about the work at GSI and FAIR during Girls’Day. They took advantage of this future-oriented day to gain an insight into the many activities that are pursued at an international research institution, especially in professions where women have seldom been represented so far.

Professor Björn Jonson has been rewarded with the highest award of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) — the Lomonosov Gold Medal named after the Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov. Jonson is currently a professor at the Chalmers University in Sweden. His longstanding cooperation with GSI/FAIR include leading the HALO collaboration at the Large Area Neutron Detector (LAND) of GSI and being spokesperson of the NUSTAR collaboration. He was also deputy spokesman of the R3B collaboration and is...

Precise time measurements play a vital role in our daily life. They allow reliable navigation and accurate experimenting and provide a basis for world-wide synchronized exchange of data. A team of researchers of PTB Braunschweig, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM), and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt now reports on a decisive step toward the potential development of a nuclear...
