30.09.2014 | Storage ring experiments confirm fundaments of physics

J. Mai/GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH

Experimental storage ring at GSI.

 

With the experimental storage ring at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH two fundamental theories of physics were examined once more: Einstein's special theory of relativity and the quantum electrodynamics. GSI physicists together with colleagues of international universities and institutes ran experiments with lithium and bismuth ions which proved that both theories provide accurate predictions even under extrem conditions.
