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?



Our calendar 2018 is now available. Update: calendars for shipping are out of stock. GSI and FAIR employees can get a copy at the foyer or the storage.

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....

The search goes on. No difference in protons and antiprotons have yet been found which would help to potentially explain the existence of matter in our universe. However, physicists in the BASE collaboration at the CERN research center have been able to measure the magnetic force of antiprotons with almost unbelievable precision. Nevertheless, the data do not provide any information about how matter formed in the early universe as particles and antiparticles would have had to completely destroy...

Central predictions by GSI scientists on the formation of heavy elements such as gold and platinum in the universe have now been observed astrophysically. For the first time gravitational waves of merging neutron stars were detected. This also puts further focus on the future accelerator facility FAIR, as conditions for further research on neutron stars can be simulated there.

The FAIR/GSI received recently a delegation from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar. The delegation from IIT Ropar included scientists, faculty members and members of international affairs. The visit to FAIR and GSI included a warm welcome by the NUSTAR collaboration followed by a roundtable meeting with Joint Scientific Managing Director Prof. Paolo Giubellino and Joint Research Director Prof. Karlheinz Langanke and a delegation of heads of several departments at FAIR/GSI.

Dynamic developments and lots of news concerning the construction status of the unique particle accelerator facility FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) sparked considerable interest at the international real estate trade fair Expo Real in Munich. Over a period of three days at Expo Real, FAIR provided an in-depth presentation of the construction planning and the next development steps of the mammoth building project. This year, the focus was primarily on the technical building...
