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...

A multi-year research project led by the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung has been investigating the anti-inflammatory therapeutic effect, as well as the risks, of treatment with the inert gas radon. The project has now received a green light for continuing this research. A total of €4 million will be available to it in the coming four years, with €1.9 million of that amount going to the groups working at GSI.

Professor Gerhard Kraft, the former Head of the Biophysics department of GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, has been named the Honorary President of the European Radiation Research Society (ERRS). Gerhard Kraft initiated the use of ion beams for cancer treatment and founded the biophysical research department at GSI. He was named to this honorary position in recognition of his outstanding achievements, particularly in the fields of cancer research and heavy ion therapy.

This year’s Christoph Schmelzer Award has been granted to three young scientists. Lennart Volz from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, Dr. Johannes Petzoldt from the IBA Group in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), and Dr. Kristjan Anderle from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt were presented with the award on November 16 at the GSI campus in Darmstadt. The Association for the Promotion of Tumor Therapy with Heavy Ions presents this award annually in...

Matter: the stuff the world is made of. Matter was created in the universe, but how exactly did it come into being? What are its properties? And how can we use the future particle accelerator FAIR, which is currently under construction at GSI, to give answers to these questions?

Current research and future developments at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) were main topics during the visit of a delegation from Darmstadt's new sister city San Antonio in Texas. The programme of the high-ranking delegation from the US-American metropolis, which is visiting Darmstadt to finalize signing of the sister city agreement, included after the greeting by Joint Research Director Professor Karlheinz Langanke a visit to...

Big progress is being made in the production of the components of the new FAIR particle accelerator facility at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. At the heart of the future facility will be the 1.1-kilometer ring accelerator SIS100, which is very challenging from a technological point of view. An important step has now been taken in the accelerator’s creation. It consists of the delivery of the first series-production main magnet for the new heavy-ion ring accelerator....
