Experiments at GSI and FAIR

  • BaustelleFAIR_Sep18_big

GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung (GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research) operates a large-scale worldwide unique accelerator facility for heavy ions. Researchers from all over the world use the facility for experiments to gain new insights about the building blocks of matter and the evolution of the universe. In addition they develop new applications in medicine and technology.

FAIR — Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research
At GSI, FAIR is currently being built, an international accelerator facility for the research with antiprotons and ions which is being developed and constructed in cooperation with international partners. It is one of the world’s largest construction projects for international cutting-edge research.

Especially the nuclear and particle physics experiments currently at HADES, and in the future at FAIR: CBM, R3B and PANDA are using EPICS to control their experiment setups.
