The future accelerator facility for beams of ions and antiprotons at
Darmstadt [1] will provide antiproton beams of intensities that are
two orders of magnitude higher than currently available. Within the
foreseen scheme, antiprotons can be decelerated to 30 MeV. The low-
energy antiproton community has recently formed a users group to make
use of this opportunity to create a next-generation low-energy
antiproton facility called FLAIR. A letter of intent [2] has been
submitted for a new facility that goes far beyond the current
Antiproton Decelerator at CERN by providing cooled antiproton beams
using two storage rings of 300 keV and 20 keV minimum energy. The
availability of low-emittance beams at these low energies will
greatly enhance the density of antiprotons stopped in dilute gases or
ion traps for precision spectroscopy. FLAIR will also provide slow
extracted (i.e. continuous) beams of antiprotons, thereby enabling
nuclear and particle physics type experiments which need coincidence
techniques. Using internal targets in the storage rings, atomic
collision experiments with ultra-low energy antiprotons and ions can
be performed for the first time.

The letter of intent for FLAIR as well as the technical proposal [3]
have been positively evaluated by the APPA PAC and the STI committee
of FAIR, and FLAIR has been added to the core part of FAIR. If
funding can be secured, FLAIR will provide antiproton and ion beams
from the year 2014.
