Intensive talks, new contacts, fruitful discussions: FAIR GmbH (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe) and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung drew a positive balance following their participation in internationally renowned real estate exhibition Expo Real in Munich, Germany. For three days the construction plans and implementation steps for the unique particle accelerator facility FAIR were presented.

The analysis of atomic spectra is of fundamental importance for our understanding of atomic structures. Until now, researchers were unable to examine heavy elements with optical spectroscopy because these elements do not occur in nature and cannot be artificially created in weighable amounts. However, scientists have now looked for the first time into the inner structure of heavy elements. For this they used short-lived nobelium atoms with a nuclear charge of Z=102, which had been produced at...

The realization of the FAIR accelerator center is progressing rapidly. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research has approved approximately €200 million in funding for the construction of the FAIR facility. Thanks to the approval of the funding, FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe) and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung can now begin to award construction commissions, e.g. for the tunnel of the approximately 1.1-kilometer-long underground ring...
