The FRS (FRagment Separator) group focuses on the production and investigation of nuclear structure of exotic nuclei. Thanks to the characteristics of the high-resolution magnetic spectrometer FRS, exotic nuclei can be produced, separated, identified and eventually stored in a storage ring. The FRS group at GSI provides the technical infrastructure and service for external scientists that come to perform their experiment here.
Simple description of the scientific activity linked to the FRS, here.
Head of the group is Prof. Dr. Christoph Scheidenberger.
The former head of the FRS group Prof. Dr. Hans Geissel is active as Helmholtz Professor.
