Facility for Low-energy Antiproton and Ion Research Workshop 2012

  • Conference Call
  • Organisors and Main Goals

    This workshop is jointly organized by the FLAIR Scientific Council, the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik MPIK Heidelberg, the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH, Darmstadt, the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität, Mainz, the Extreme Matter Institute EMMI Darmstadt, and the Helmholtz-Institute Mainz HIM.

    The Facility for Low-Energy Antiproton and Ion Research (FLAIR) Collaboration has been formed within the new international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) at GSI, Darmstadt, Germany, and makes use of the beams of antiprotons and highly-charged ions from NESR to further decelerate and cool them in two storage rings (LSR and USR) and a universal trap facility HITRAP. Antiprotons will be provided in both, slow and fast extraction modes down to the keV-range with intensities that are significantly larger than currently available and phase space densities that are unprecedented, enabling many new experiments. Furthermore, the facility is well-suited to be used with highly charged ions, enabling a suite of novel experiments and leading to a strong overlap with the SPARC collaboration.

    Workshop Program

    The workshop program will concentrate on the following topics: 

    • Experiments with antiprotons and antihydrogen 
    • Highly charged ions in traps and rings for spectroscopy 
    • Interaction of low-energy highly charged ions and antiprotons with composite and solid targets 
    • Nuclear and particle physics with antiprotons 
    • Heavy-ion experiments, ion surface interactions, collision dynamics 
    • Antiprotonic atom X-ray spectroscopy 
    • New instrumentation and facilities 

    In order to allow for attendance of all sessions, no parallel sessions will be held. For questions concerning the scientific program please contact:

    Support for Students

    We are able to provide some financial support for students. A prerequisite for support is the submission of an oral or poster contribution and a short letter of support from your supervisor. The application can be made to sekretariat.blaum@mpi-hd.mpg.de, the deadline is 01.02.2012. The local organizing committee will decide if and how much support can be granted.
