Highest quality for research is the principle at the future FAIR accelerator center. The sophisticated beam transport, which is guided by the magnetic fields produced by electromagnets weighing several tons, is one of the main contributions to this. To supply them with power, ultra-stable high power converters are needed. These high-tech components come from India and are an important contribution to the FAIR project.

The research is concerned with the properties of magnetic materials and tailor-made changes to new materials: Two teams of female physicists from the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) will receive a total of 2.8 million euros for a period of three years. They are developing new instruments for experiments on particle accelerators. One project will be implemented at the CRYRING ion storage ring at the GSI and FAIR campus in Darmstadt.

Where do the chemical elements come from? What does it look like in the interior of a neutron star? Is it possible to destroy tumors with ion beams? Answers to many exciting questions about particle accelerators and ongoing experiments were given to the visitors who were guests on the GSI and FAIR campus during the campaign days of industrial culture.

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.
