Further important steps toward the completion of the unique superconducting magnets for the future accelerator center FAIR have been taken during the visit of a delegation from GSI and FAIR to Dubna, Russia. In order to guide the particles in a precise beam at close to light speed, FAIR requires hundreds of magnets and complete magnet systems, some of them custom-made. These systems also include a series of superconducting quadrupole units for the large ring accelerator SIS100. Russia is...

The particle accelerator Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN will end its second running period with a heavy-ion run, colliding lead nuclei (Pb), starting in November. After a subsequent long shutdown, in 2021 the accelerator will resume operation with an increased luminosity. In order to fully benefit from the expected rate of 50,000 Pb-Pb collisions per second, the ALICE experiment is currently upgrading its detectors. The ALICE group at GSI is on the...
