Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics Laboratoire national canadien pour la recherche en physique nucléaire et en physique des particules

Research Topics



Accelerator Physics

TRIUMF accelerators are the heart of the Canadian accelerator-based experimental subatomic physics program.

Detector Development

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.

Molecular & Materials Science

A wide range of topics are studied at TRIUMF, ranging from industrial basic research for automobile technology to definitive measurements and test of high-temperature superconductors.

Nuclear Medicine

TRIUMF's cyclotrons produce critical isotopes used for medical imaging.   The techniques for producing these isotopes are also used by subatomic physicists to peer “inside” the atom.
