The construction of the international accelerator facility FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) has begun. The start of building construction and civil engineering work is a crucial moment for one of the largest construction projects for scientific research worldwide. On July 4, 2017, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the large ring accelerator SIS 100, which will be the key component of the future accelerator facility FAIR. The construction site is located to the northeast of GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt.

April 2013, News, , , ,

The ATRAP experiment at CERN’s Antiproton Decelerator [AD] has measured the magnetic moment of the antiproton with highest accuracy to date. ATRAP’s new result may help to eventually unveil one of the great mysteries of modern physics: the matter-antimatter imbalance of the Universe. Results are described in a paper published in Physical Review Letters last month.

In order to make the most accurate measurements of the antiprotons’ properties, the ATRAP’s team was able…
