Professor Marco Durante, Head of the GSI Biophysics Research Department, has received the Martin Schneider Memorial Award. With this award, the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston honors scientists providing outstanding contributions in radiology or radiotherapy.
They are among the hottest moments in cosmic events: the collisions of neutron stars in the universe, in which chemical elements are formed. With particle collisions in the accelerator scientists are able to create similar conditions at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future FAIR accelerator center. Now, an international group of researchers at the HADES collaboration has succeeded for the first time in measuring the thermal electromagnetic radiation – the so-called...
The progress of the FAIR project and the current scientific activities on campus were the central topics during the visit of Dr. Stefan Kaufmann, a member of the Bundestag. The politician comes from Stuttgart and belongs to the CDU party. He is member of the committee on Education, Research and Technology Assessment of the Bundestag and deputy member of the parliamentary budget committee. He was received by Ursula Weyrich, Administrative Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, Professor Thomas...
The successful cooperation between the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schweronenforschung and the Italian National Nuclear Physics Institute (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, INFN) in development and construction of superconducting magnets has existed for many years. On this basis the foundation for further collaboration in this area has now been laid. The INFN will put a series of complex magnet systems, so-called quadrupole modules, for the large FAIR ring accelerator SIS100 through extensive...
Angela Dorn, the Hessen State Minister for Higher Education, Research and the Arts, recently visited GSI and FAIR. She was welcomed by Ursula Weyrich, Administrative Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, as well as by Research Director Professor Karlheinz Langanke and FAIR Construction Site Manager Harald Hagelskamp. Minister Dorn was accompanied by Dr. Ulrike Mattig, Head of Unit III 5 for non-university research institutions of the ministry.
37 Students from 19 countries participate in the Summer Student Program of GSI and FAIR this year. They spend eight weeks on campus, getting to know the experiments and research areas of GSI and FAIR and experiencing everyday work at an international accelerator laboratory.
The visit of Bernd Reuther, FDP Member of the Bundestag, to GSI and FAIR focused on the progress of the FAIR project and the current scientific activities on campus. The politician was received by Ursula Weyrich, Administrative Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, FAIR Site Manager Harald Hagelskamp and Ingo Peter, Head of Public Relations.
The broad expertise of the scientists at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and at the accelerator center FAIR, currently under construction, is in demand. Latest occasion: The radiation biologist Professor Claudia Fournier from the Biophysics Department of GSI was appointed by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as an expert to a United Nations scientific committee meeting.
Professor Yuri Tsolakovich Oganessian, Russian researcher of Armenian descend and currently scientific leader of the Flerov Laboratory for Nuclear Reactions of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, visited FAIR and GSI. The 86-year-old Oganessian has led many experiments on the synthesis of artificially produced chemical elements, including the heaviest currently existing element of the periodic table, element 118, which was named Oganesson in his honor.
