The Advanced Rare IsotopE Laboratory (ARIEL) is TRIUMF's flagship facility that will expand Canada's capabilities to produce and study isotopes for physics and medicine. Utilizing next-generation technology, it will showcase a Made-in-Canada, high-power superconducting electron accelerator to produce exotic isotopes for research and development.
Benefits to Canada
Together, ARIEL and TRIUMF will generate a $750 milllion economic impact over five years with 1,200 jobs.
The ARIEL facility includes five major elements to fulfill its mission:
The five major work packages are managed under a structure shown in the ARIEL Organization Diagram.
