An international research team has for the first time at ISOLDE, the Isotope Separator On Line Device at CERN, succeeded in creating six chromium isotopes and measuring their masses up to 300 times more precisely than ever before using the ISOLTRAP ion trap. The ISOLTRAP experiment was largely constructed by scientists from GSI and has been constantly supported by significant contributions from GSI since that time. The new measurement results have enabled scientist to make the first-ever...

Sixty experts from all over the world met at ESI, the European Scientific Institute in France, in June to jointly explore future medical accelerators for treating cancer with ions. The workshop, “Ions for cancer therapy, space research and material science”, jointly organised by CERN, GSI and ESI, focused on possibilities to advance towards the design for a next generation medical and research facility for ion therapy in Europe. It is the second workshop of a series initiated by GSI to highlight...
