The planed Facility for Ion Research (FAIR) is a new international accelerator laboratory at the GSI in Darm-stadt, Germany. The main topic at this facility is aimed to heavy ion research. The FAIR project in comparison to the existing facility GSI extends the research area by raising the energy of ion beams. After creation of the ion beam at the ion source the state charge is low. Therefor the demand for acceleration of the beam to the highest possible energy is a highly ionized charge state of the beam. For beam stripping to get higher charge state, the traditional tools are gas stripper and foil stripper [1, 2]. Hence Plasma is suggested to be a stripper medium. In Frankfurt are different kinds of Pinch Plasmas under investigation for Stripper. The constricting effect on the plasma or conductor is produced by the magnetic field pressure resulting from the current or by the Lorentz force produced by the current flowing in its own magnetic field. In addition to separate the high pressure discharge cham-ber of the accelerator a plasma window will be used [3]. This contribution gives an overview of the plasma proper-ties and shows first results of different beam times at the GSI.
