ARIEL to Expand our Range of Isotopes

ARIEL will increase TRIUMF's capabilities for producing beams of rare isotopes. These isotopes will be used to study the nature of stars, where the elements come from, and how complex patterns arise from relatively simple building blocks.

Innovation and Education

E-Linac Moves Into ARIEL

TRIUMF's new electron linear accelerator, the e-linac, is in position! This state-of-the-art equipment is at the heart of ARIEL and will increase TRIUMF's capabiites for isotope production. 

Federal Support for Medical Isotopes Development

The Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification Michelle Rempel announced funding of $5.5 million to support TRIUMF in procuring a new TR-24 cyclotron and developing the Institute for Accelerator-based Medical Isotopes.

IsoSiM Enriches Young Researchers

Led by TRIUMF and UBC, with funding from the NSERC CREATE Initiative, the Isotopes for Science and Medicine program will enrich training experiences for young Canadian researchers.

Canadian Cancer Society Innovation Grant

Pioneering research on Astatine-211, carrying great potential for the treatment of late-stage cancer, won Dr. Tom Ruth and UVic Ph.D. student Jason Crawford an Innovation Grant from the Canadian Cancer Society.

Canadian Team Addresses Tc-99m Crisis

In demonstrating technology suitable and scalable for multiple brands of cyclotrons, this Canadian team has developed a comprehensive solution to produce Tc-99m for large population bases.

With Canadians, T2K Sees Neutrinos Appear

TIGRESS Detector in the Global Spotlight

In April 2013, Vancouver's Andy White was awarded 2nd place in a global contest based on “photowalks" by amateur photographers through labs around the world. His photo celebrates the TIGRESS detector at TRIUMF.


30 September 2014 - The campaign to demonstrate 10 MV/m accelerating gradient in the SRF cavities of the e-linac injector and accelerator cryomodules achieved two critically important milestones, each meeting or exceeding design specification!

24 September 2014 - With astonishing speed, the E-Linac beam line was installed in the ARIEL tunnel. A key synergy between three offices on site, the Design Office, the Machine Shop, and the Beam Lines Group, resulted in a precise, accurate, and speedy installation.

22 September 2014 - His Excellency Rafael Barak, Israel’s Ambassador to Canada, visited TRIUMF to foster cooperation and derive benefit from the rich history of peaceful collaboration between Israel and TRIUMF.
