    Description

    FAIR is a particle accelerator laboratory in Darmstadt, Germany, which will produce high-energy and high-intensity particle beams, primary and secondary ion beams and antiproton beams. Ion beams enable advanced research in four different fields of physics. The accelerator complex contains cooler and storage rings for particle beams and enables the use of internal targets for research purposes. Two superconducting synchrotrons generate high-intensity ion beams with a maximum energy of 35 GeV/u and enable primary heavy-ion beams as heavy as uranium, along with a wide range of radioactive ion beams.
