In cooperation with colleagues from Germany and the United States, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have managed to demonstrate ‘diamond showers’ forming in the ice giants of our solar system. Using the ultra-strong X-ray laser and other facilities at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in California, they simulated the conditions inside the cosmic giants. For the first time ever, they were able to observe the fission of hydrocarbon and the conversion of...

In cooperation with GSI, physicists and engineers from the Helmholtz Institute Mainz and the Goethe University Frankfurt have performed the first successful test of the novel design of crossbar (CH) superconducting RF cavity with beam. This is one of the main milestones for the proposed superconducting continuous wave (cw) linac, which can open up new research opportunities at GSI and FAIR with its a continuous beam of particles. Among other things, this makes the accelerator particularly well...

FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research), which is currently being built at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, will open up outstanding possibilities for experimentation. These possibilities are already attracting a great deal of interest from the scientific community. That’s because the planned FAIR accelerator facility has a huge potential to provide us with new insights. This view is also shared by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which has now approved around €168,000...
