India in FAIR



The Republic of India signed the FAIR convention on 4 October 2010 in Wiesbaden, Germany, and declared its contribution to the FAIR construction to be 36 M Euro and 3,5 percent of the current FAIR GmbH shares.

Indian Researchers, under the guidance of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India, have been working since 2005 in identifying the areas of participation both in experiments and accelerator components. The participation in experiments is guided mostly by the extensions of the similar ongoing programmes where Indian researchers are engaged over the decades both inside the country and abroad.

Indian scientists will be engaged in building detectors for the major experimental programmes of FAIR, i.e. NUSTAR (Nuclear Structure, Astrophysics and Reactions), CBM (Compressed Baryonic Matter) and PANDA (Antiproton Anihilation at Darmstadt). Another area of major participation is building equipment to be used at the heart of the FAIR accelerator.
