PHELIX and Plasmaphysics Program Advisory Committee (PPAC)
The PHELIX and Plasmaphysics Program Advisory Committee (PPAC, former PHELIX Committee) is an international program advisory committee of GSI. It gives advice to the GSI Directorate on selecting experiment proposals that are submitted by individual users or user groups in the field of plasma physics with ions and lasers. Following periodic calls for proposals, the PPAC meets approx. once every year; it evaluates the experiment proposals on the basis of scientific merit and technical feasibility, and makes recommendations on the amount of beam time to be allotted.
Database of granted beam time
For information on remaining shifts/proposals of approved experiments your local contact person can search a database of active proposals. Entries are updated at the end of each beam time block.
