HIM supports March for Science

April 22 in Frankfurt
The movement „March for Science“ claims science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity.
“The Marches for Science are a celebration of science.  It's not only about scientists and politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world“, so proclaimed on the initiative’s website.

Workshop: HIgh MAgnetic Fields for FUNdamental Physics (HIMAFUN), 29 & 30. May 2017

Organized by Prof. Dmitry Budker (HIM), Dr. Geert Rikken (University of Toulouse III), Prof. Carlo Rizzo (University of Toulouse III)
Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses – Toulouse, France

High magnetic fields are a very important tool for investigating matter properties. In particular, their impact in fundamental physics is astonishing. They constitute the base of instrumentation like
accelerators and particle detectors. They are also a unique probe to test fundamental particles properties like in the case of the electron magnetic anomalous moment and in more general terms to test Quantum Electrodynamics in bound systems and in vacuum. Physics beyond the standard model also needs high magnetic fields to answer questions still open as in the case of axion and axionlike particle search.

HIM-Scientists participate in Top 10 Discovery

Scientists from GSI & HIM are participants in one of the ten most important discoveries of 2016

Scientists from GSI are participants in one of the ten most important discoveries of 2016. A publication by a team of researchers led by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and including scientists and engineers from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM), and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) is among the most important breakthroughs in physics in 2016. The team’s work is featured as one of the “2016 Top Ten Breakthroughs of the Year” announced recently in Physics World — the magazine of the British Institute of Physics. The experiments in question lay one of the foundations for the development of a nuclear clock with previously unattained precision.
