The FLAIR Workshop and Collaboration meeting is jointly organized by the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik MPIK Heidelberg, the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH, Darmstadt, the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität, Mainz, and the Stefan-Meyer-Institut für Subatomare Physik, Vienna.
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 with energies down to the keV-range. The anticipated beam intensities will be significantly larger than currently available reaching unprecedented phase space densities that enable many new experiments. The facility will be also used with highly charged ions, leading to a strong overlap with the SPARC collaboration.
