Introduction, Overview

At GSI, heavy ion research will be extended to relativistic energies. Fig. 1 gives an overview of the heavy ion accelerator complex under construction [1]. It consists of an upgraded UNILAC used as an injector into a medium energy (1–2 GeV/u) heavy ion synchrotron SIS 18 [2,3] which is connected with a storage cooler ring ESR [4] of half the circumfenoe of SIS 18.
