APPA Physics - Atomic, Plasma Physics and Applications

APPA is an umbrella for several collaborations working on Atomic Physics, Plasma and Applied sciences. Common for all collaborations is that they share installations and experimental techniques, despite quite diverse research fields.

The following research collaborations are organized within APPA:

  • BIOMAT- Biology and Material Science 
  • FLAIR - Facility for Low-Energy Antiproton and Heavy Ion Research
  • HED@FAIR - High Energy Density Science at FAIR
  • SPARC - Stored Particles Atomic Research Collaboration

Organized units and programs within APPA are:

Upcoming APPA Events

Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, 9.-10. Dezember 2021
The first FAIR storage ring, the so-called CRYRING, is ready to conduct experiments for the scientific research community. CRYRING is an extremely successful ion storage ring that has enabled key research contributions in atomic and molecular physics in Stockholm for many years. It was brought to GSI and FAIR in Darmstadt as a Swedish in-kind contribution. Here it was modernized, adapted to FAIR standards and connected to the experimental storage ring ESR at GSI under the project name…
On January 11th and 12th, the "APPA-R&D Verbundforschung" collaboration will convene to its anual meeting at GSI, Darmstadt. More information: Conference website
During the September 2017 beam time a major milestone has been achieved for commissioning the low energy storage ring facility CRYRING@ESR. Single charged hydrogen molecules, H2+ ions, were produced in the local ion source, accelerated to 300 keV/nucleon, injected into CRYRING@ESR, stored and accelerated up to 1 MeV/nucleon. This is a major step on the way towards experiments at CRYRING with slow, heavy, highly charged ions as part of the FAIR Phase Zero physics program and beyond. Since 2013…
From September 11th to 14th, 2017 the SPARC collaboration shall convene to their 14th annual meeting. This years event will be hosted at GANIL in Caen, France. Conference website
