In cooperation with GSI, physicists and engineers from the Helmholtz Institute Mainz and the Goethe University Frankfurt have performed the first successful test of the novel design of crossbar (CH) superconducting RF cavity with beam. This is one of the main milestones for the proposed superconducting continuous wave (cw) linac, which can open up new research opportunities at GSI and FAIR with its a continuous beam of particles. Among other things, this makes the accelerator particularly well...

FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research), which is currently being built at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, will open up outstanding possibilities for experimentation. These possibilities are already attracting a great deal of interest from the scientific community. That’s because the planned FAIR accelerator facility has a huge potential to provide us with new insights. This view is also shared by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which has now approved around €168,000...

Cells use sophisticated repair mechanisms to deal with damaged genetic material. In cooperation with scientists from Munich and Berlin, researchers from Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt, recently identified one of the elementary structural units of this repair mechanism. They reported their findings in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.

The construction of the international accelerator facility FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) has begun. The start of building construction and civil engineering work is a crucial moment for one of the largest construction projects for scientific research worldwide. On July 4, 2017, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the large ring accelerator SIS 100, which will be the key component of the future accelerator facility FAIR. The construction site is located to the northeast of...

A royal visitor from Thailand: Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand recently visited GSI and FAIR in Darmstadt. During her tour, the princess learned about the latest research activities, the various infrastructures, and the future FAIR accelerator center. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was also signed during the visit in order to promote scientific and technological cooperation between the research institutes of the two countries.

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,...
