|Experimental Result||15 September 2014||
Scientists from TRIUMF and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory published a paper in the prestigious Physical Review Letters outlining a technique which for the first time enables researchers to analyze systems of three nuclear clusters in relative motion.
|Experimental Result||12 September 2014||
With the mass efforts building in the Electron Hall this year, many components of the e-linac are in position and ready for operation. Klystron One and Klystron Two, the high-power continuous wave klystrons, are ready to power the cryomodules of the e-linac.

On August 25, the Honourable Ed Holder visited TRIUMF to met with members of the leadership team, including Director Jonathan Bagger, as well as researchers, engineers, and technicians during a tour of ARIEL. From STEM education to "Made in Canada" technolgy, the Minister had a peek into TRIUMF's full program.
|Awards & Honours||02 September 2014||
Mirko Miorelli, a PhD student at UBC and member of the Theory Group at TRIUMF, won the poster competition at the 2014 Gordon Research Conference on Photonuclear Reactions: from Quarks to Nuclei for his poster "Electric Dipole Polarizability from Coupled-Cluster Theory." Congratulations, Mirko!
|From the Director||15 August 2014||
Dr. Karl Erdman, one of the lab's founding physicists who played a major role in its construction and development in the early years, passed away last week. His booming voice and laughter will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
|Workshops & Conferences||15 August 2014||
The 15th international conference on Nuclear Structure (NS2014) has been held from July 20-25 in the Life Science Building on the UBC campus. 174 attendees from 22 countries and 80 different institutions discussed the latest experimental and theoretical research, with emphasis on the properties of nuclei at the extremes of isospin, excitation energy, mass, and angular momentum.
|Student Stories||15 August 2014||
After six weeks of hands-on research placements at TRIUMF, three distinguished high school fellows are now preparing to enter their first year of university with a unique experience straight from the laboratory.
|Workshops & Conferences||13 August 2014||
The 5th Open Meeting for the Hyper-Kamiokande Project was held in Vancouver at TRIUMF and UBC. Nearly 100 scientists from across Canada, Japan, Italy, US, UK, Brazil and other partner countries participated in the meeting to encourage global collaboration for the Hyper-K project.

Antimatter is used in pop culture as a means of space propulsion (Star Trek) or destruction (Angels and Demons). In the recent Unveiling the Universe lecture, Makoto Fujiwara pointed out that antimatter is “not science fiction, it is science fact" and presented the work that trapped, studied, and understood antimatter.
