Yury A. Litvinov

Principal Investigator, WA Representative

Yury A. Litvinov (Representative of WA3) is a recognized expert in the application of heavy-ion storage rings for precision experiments with stored, highly-charged heavy stable as well as radioactive ions at the intersection of nuclear structure and atomic physics. Furthermore, he leads a research group pursuing nuclear astrophysics experiments at the ESR and CRYRING facilities of GSI as well as of the future FAIR.

Internationally, Yury A. Litvinov is in collaboration boards of all operational heavy-ion storage rings. Since 2017, he is an Associate Professor at the University of Heidelberg teaching atomic, nuclear and accelerator physics. He is a co-author of more than 350 publications, which were cited more than 6500 times by more than 2500 scientific articles.
