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...

The world’s largest accelerator conference is held from 29 April to 4 May in Vancouver, Canada, this year. Already for the 9th time experts from all over the world meet at the International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC) to discuss cutting-edge accelerator research and development results and gain the latest insights into accelerator facilities across the globe. IPAC is the main international event for the worldwide accelerator community and industry. More than 1,200 delegates and 70...

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...

Hundreds of powerful magnets will be needed to guide particles in a precise beam at nearly the speed of light at the future accelerator center FAIR, which is currently being built at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. Widely varied types of magnets and magnet systems are used for this purpose. They include the 168 quadrupole magnet units that will be used in the large SIS100 ring accelerator. These units are being manufactured and tested by Russia and represent an...

In addition to its scientific significance, the FAIR project is also an important job generator. FAIR and GSI currently offer a large number of highly qualified jobs in the field of cutting-edge technologies and international science. Recently FAIR and GSI presented numerous new job offers at the Frankfurt Exhibition Center at the "VDI Nachrichten Recruiting Tag", an important career fair of the VDI Association of German Engineers.

A research team led by physicists at LMU Munich reports a significant advance in laser-driven particle acceleration. Using tiny plastic beads as targets, they have produced proton bunches that possess unique features, opening up new opportunities for future studies. The experiments were performed at the PHELIX laser on the campus of GSI und FAIR.
