Breakthrough Prize in Physics

Congratulations to the Daya Bay, Kamland, SNO, Super-Kamiokande, and T2K/K2K collaborations “for the fundamental discovery of neutrino oscillations, revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics.”  Photo: 2015 Getty Images

Solving the Neutrino Puzzle

Congratulations to Takaaki Kajita of University of Tokyo and Art McDonald of Queen's University! Their discovery that neutrinos change identities has changed our understanding of the innermost workings of matter and can prove crucial to our view of the universe. 

Saturday Morning Lectures

TRIUMF, UBC, and SFU are proud to present the 2015-2016 Saturday morning lecture series on Frontiers of Modern Physics. Join us this fall for free lectures as we celebrate Einstein's Centenary.
