Society for Heavy Ions Research
The GSI - Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung
- in Darmstadt is a large-scale research facility financed by the Federal
Republic of Germany and the Federal State of Hesse. GSI operates an
accelerator plant used to accelerate heavy ions by up to 90% of the
speed of light. The plant consists of the linear accelerator UNILAC
achieving energies of 2 to 20 MeV per nucleon, the heavy-ion synchrotron
SIS (1 to 2 GeV per nucleon) and the experimental storage ring ESR.
Experiments are carried out on 30 different experimental set-ups. The
700 employees of GSI include about 300 scientists and engineers. In
addition, the GSI equipment is used by almost 1,000 external scientists.
In total, scientists from more than 100 institutes from over 25 countries
are involved in the research work at GSI. The GSI research spectrum
ranges from fundamental research in the field of nuclear and atomic
physics to applied subjects such as tumour therapy, material research,
plasma physics and accelerator development.
