05 March 2014 - Last week, TRIUMF was briefly buried under a rare, late-season snowfall. It was up to TRIUMF's Plant Group to clear the snow before temperatures warmed up again and turned the snow into dangerous ice.
19 February 2014 - A pioneer and founder of TRIUMF and an inspiration in physics and life to many, Erich W. Vogt passed away peacefully this morning at Vancouver General Hospital.
13 February 2014 - During this annual shutdown period, the Ultra-Cold Neutron (UCN) project kicks off construction of their state-of-the-art experimental area, "excavating" the shielding blocks in the southwestern Meson Hall for the first time since 1978.
28 February 2014 - From February 18-21, TRIUMF’s Theory Group hosted the Nuclear Structure and Reactions: Experimental and Ab Initio Theoretical Perspectives workshop. Forty scientists gathered to share their latest results, exchange new ideas, and establish new collaborations.
25 February 2014 - The 2013 Suwa Award was presented to the J-PARC Neutrino Beam Group last week in Japan, to celebrate the achievement of the world’s highest-intensity neutrino beam, used in the T2K experiment.
13 February 2014 - A new electron neutrino appearance result from the T2K collaboration was published this week, bringing researchers one step closer to answering one of the greatest puzzles of particle physics: why is there more matter than antimatter in our universe?
