For the first time, a team of researchers under the leadership of TU Darmstadt and with the participation of scientists from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung Darmstadt has succeeded in measuring the transition between energy levels of the lithium-like ions of bismuth with such precision that it has become possible to reassess underlying theories. This has led to a surprising result. The scientists have now published this result in "Nature Communications": the understanding of...

Visitors received an opportunity to be researchers and discoverers for a day on Sunday, May 7, at the Open House event of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future FAIR accelerator center. Finally GSI and FAIR had a positive assessment of the event. Almost 11 000 visitors came to the campus in Darmstadt to view the research stations, laboratories, and experimental setups. GSI and FAIR had opened their doors to guests for eight hours, and thousands of curious visitors,...

As of now and until May 31, 2017, it is possible to apply for beam time for the years 2018/19 at the GSI and FAIR facilities. This marks the start for the so-called "FAIR-Phase-0", the beginning of the FAIR experimental program. Apart from the GSI accelerators UNILAC, SIS18 and ESR and the existing experiments, also parts of the FAIR instrumentation can be used, e.g. the storage ring CRYRING.

The construction of the FAIR accelerator facility is picking up speed. The preparatory work has now commenced for linking the existing accelerator systems of GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung to the new FAIR facility, which will take place later on. An important milestone here is the erection of two approximately 100-meter-long retaining walls that are up to eight meters tall. These walls are being built near GSI’s SIS18 accelerator ring, which will connect to the FAIR facility.
