Experimental Result Are Neutrinos Their Own Twin? 23 June 2014 Is it possible that instead of having a distinct antimatter particle, neutrinos could be their own antimatter twin? Determining the nature of neutrinos is a key goal of modern particle physics. EXO-200 has recently announced a result that is helping scientists answer this fundamental question.
Experimental Result The SUSY Fever 10 June 2014 The ATLAS Collaboration has released three search analyses addressing the production of charginos and neutralinos, a strong component in supersymmetry. Supersymmetry is a promising extension of the Standard Model of elementary particles.
Experimental Result Canadian Team Addresses Tc-99m Crisis 09 June 2014 In demonstrating technology suitable and scalable for multiple brands of cyclotrons, this Canadian team has developed a comprehensive solution to produce Tc-99m in large quantities suitable for large population bases. 
Experimental Result ALPHA Charges Up Antimatter 03 June 2014 In a paper published today in the journal Nature Communications, the ALPHA collaboration reports on their latest measurement of a fundamental property of antihydrogen, the ephemeral antimatter twin to normal hydrogen.
Experimental Result E-Linac Moves into the E-Hall 11 April 2014 All hands are on deck this spring as the Accelerator Division concentrates their efforts on the installation and assembly of the electron linear accelerator, the state-of-the-art equipment at the heart of ARIEL, TRIUMF's new facility for the production of rare isotopes.
Experimental Result CMMS Users Publish New Result in PRL 07 April 2014 Using the μSR facilities at TRIUMF’s Centre for Molecular and Materials Science and J‑PARC, a team of researchers from KEK and the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan have discovered novel magnetism in an iridium compound.
Student Stories Saudi Arabian Scientist Studies at TRIUMF 19 March 2014 Mohammed Abusalem, a radiochemist from King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Saudi Arabia, is spending a work term with TRIUMF's Nuclear Medicine Division.
Experimental Result T2K Publishes Electron Neutrino Appearance 13 February 2014 A new electron neutrino appearance result from the T2K collaboration was published this week, bringing researchers one step closer to answering one of the greatest puzzles of particle physics: why is there more matter than antimatter in our universe?
Experimental Result Laser Group Develops New Technique 05 December 2013 The laser spectroscopy group had its latest paper accepted into PRL. Francium isotopes are explored and a new experimental technique developed, paving the way for this recent success.
Experimental Result A Medical Isotope First at ISAC 21 October 2013 For the first time ever, Astatine-209 was successfully recovered from TRIUMF's ISAC facility for use in nuclear medicine, a breakthrough in theranostic isotope research.
