Before Coming to GSI for an Experiment

For questions related to the execution of the experiment the 'local contact person for beam time' of a granted experiment can help. Their name is given in the letter, in which the spokesperson of the experiment was informed on the result of the proposal's evaluation and on the number of granted shifts.

External users are kindly requested to take note of the Safety Procedures at GSI including a form for personal data. The latter should be completed and sent to the GSI Safety and Radioprotection Division well ahead of time. Before beam is delivered to an experiment, a final safety inspection is performed on the basis of an updated check list for safety aspects of the experiment.
