The SNOLAB Institute Board of Directors announced the re-appointment of Dr. Nigel Smith to a second term as Director of SNOLAB, following a very successful inaugural term that resulted in the first scientific results coming from SNOLAB experiments.
|Experimental Result||10 July 2014||
Recently, the DRAGON facility ran the highest mass radiative-capture experiment ever performed with a radioactive beam, and in so doing, probed the upper mass limit for nucleosynthesis in novae.

Scientists involved with radioactive-beam experiments at TRIUMF have a new reference guidebook that will prove to be an invaluable resource. ISAC and ARIEL: The TRIUMF Radioactive Beam Facilities and the Scientific Program contains information about each step of the beam's path and the future of ARIEL.
|Experimental Result||07 July 2014||
From the low energy electrons in CRT monitors to the tremendous near-light speed protons of the LHC, particle accelerators are everywhere. Accelerators are more commonplace than you might expect, with applications ranging from manufacturing to energy production to agriculture.
