Experimental Result Faster-than-light Neutrinos Under Scrutiny 05 March 2012 The controversial results of the faster-than-light neutrino experiment performed at CERN may be due to GPS technical issues.
Experimental Result New Record in Weighing the W Boson 23 February 2012 Several TRIUMF researchers are involved in Fermilab's CDF experiment which today announced the world's most sensitive measurement of the mass of the W boson.
Experimental Result Tc-99m Made on Multiple Cyclotrons 20 February 2012 The TRIUMF-led team announced today at the AAAS meeting that they have successfully produced commercial quantities of the critical medical isotope technetium-99m on existing cyclotrons in two provinces.
Experimental Result Understanding Helium 05 February 2012 Recent measurements with TRIUMF's TITAN facility, combined with theoretical modeling from TRIUMF's theory group, push back the frontiers of understanding nuclei--starting with the helium family of isotopes.
Experimental Result Short Lived, but Highly Charged 16 January 2012 Results from the TITAN team's precision studies of the rubidium-74 nucleus were published in Physical Review Letters and selected as an Editor's Choice.  The team developed high charge states of the ions to achieve the record results.
Experimental Result A World Record for Isotope Production 20 December 2011 TRIUMF has set a new world record for most intense beams directed onto a heavy, metal target for isotope production.  The new record is nearly five times the previous one held by CERN's ISOLDE project.
Experimental Result Physicists Smell but Don't Yet Taste Higgs 13 December 2011 Seminars around the world and across Canada today announced new updates on the search for the Higgs boson of the Standard Model. We have surrounded its last hiding place!
Experimental Result Public Seminar to Discuss Higgs Updates 09 December 2011 A public seminar will be held at TRIUMF this Tuesday, December 13, to discuss the latest updates realeased from CERN about the serach for the Higgs Boson that day.
Experimental Result Uncovering the Complete Story of Drug Mechanisms and Diseases in the Human Body 14 November 2011 TRIUMF is proud to host Yu-Shin Ding, an international expert on PET research, as she helps develop radiotracers at TRIUMF to study Parkinson's and other diseases.
Experimental Result An Award-Worthy Look at Electronic Glitches 05 October 2011 Visiting scientist Brian Sierawski's work at TRIUMF on radiation-induced soft-errors has earned him the award for 'Best Student Paper.'
