In cooperation with GSI, physicists and engineers from the Helmholtz Institute Mainz and the Goethe University Frankfurt have performed the first successful test of the novel design of crossbar (CH) superconducting RF cavity with beam. This is one of the main milestones for the proposed superconducting continuous wave (cw) linac, which can open up new research opportunities at GSI and FAIR with its a continuous beam of particles. Among other things, this makes the accelerator particularly well suited for the creation of new chemical elements.
