Title: Status of the FAIR Facility

Abstract

A new accelerator Facility for Research with Antiproton and Ion Beams (FAIR) has been proposed by GSI. This contribution will give a short overview of the present status of the accelerator complex design with particular emphasis on the installations which employ cooling devices. Stochastic and electron cooling are foreseen in the different storage rings over a large energy range. Stochastic cooling will be applied as first cooling stage to secondary beams of rare isotopes which are produced by projectile fragmentation of heavy ions and to antiprotons which are produced from a high intensity proton beam. In the storage rings which are predominantly used for experiments the highest beam quality of the stored beam will be achieved by electron cooling.
