TRIUMF accelerators are the heart of the Canadian accelerator-based experimental subatomic physics program.
Over the last several decades, TRIUMF’s detector group has established an international reputation for developing, designing and constructing state-of-the-art detectors, as well as developing new detector technologies.
A wide range of topics are studied at TRIUMF, ranging from industrial basic research for automobile technology to definitive measurements and tests of high-temperature superconductors using muons, also utilized in wide-ranging studies in the chemical sciences.

Rare-isotope beam studies at TRIUMF focus on three areas: nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, and fundamental symmetries.
The Theory Group provides guidance and support to the TRIUMF experimental program and acts as a theoretical center for the broader Canadian subatomic theory community.
