First FLAIR Meeting


Meeting of the "Users group for low-energy antiproton physics at GSI"

Sept. 18, 2 p.m., 2003, until Sept. 19, 5 p.m.

There is considerable interest in a future low-energy antiproton facility at GSI which might increase the total number of antiprotons by one to two orders of magnitude compared to the AD at CERN. In addition, a tremendous improvement is expected by producing cooled beams down to few 100 keV energy at much reduced emittances. This will most likely enable novel experiments.

We are going to form a "Users group for low-energy antiproton physics at GSI" for people who are interested in using low-energy antiprotons. A first meeting will take place on Sept. 18, 2 p.m., until Sept. 19, 5 p.m., at GSI.  The program of the meeting can be downloaded  [Leitet Herunterladen der Datei ein] here.

Topics for this meeting are:

  • layout and performance of the facility
  • preparation of a Letter of Intent for GSI which addresses
  • the scientific case
  • facility layout and performance
  • cost estimates
  • milestones
  • forming of a steering committee

The meeting is open for participants who are interested in low-energy antiproton physics. Please send an email to Jochen Walz,  [Öffnet ein Fenster zum Versenden der E-Mail] jcw(at), if you are planning to come and/or if you like to receive further information. If you know somebody else who might be interested in joining this users group meeting please forward this web page to her or him.
