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 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

Scientific and development programms within APPA:

  • APPA R&D (BMBF-Verbundforschung for period 2015-2018)

APPA is a part of the Helmholtz-programme "From Matter to Materials and Life".

Overview of APPA experimental areas at FAIR


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,...



The APPA R&D collaboration will reassemble for its annual meeting at GSI, Darmstadt on January 17th and 18th.
