|Awards & Honours||14 October 2014||
Robert McPherson of the University of Victoria Physics and Astronomy and Institute of Particle Physics has been selected as the Deputy Spokesperson of the ATLAS Experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The ATLAS Collaboration Board elected McPherson at its meeting in Geneva on October 10, 2014.
|Experimental Result||08 October 2014||
The ATLAS collaboration has released the final measurement of the Higgs boson coupling to W bosons using data from the first run of the Large Hadron Collider. The newly optimized analysis studies the Higgs boson in two production modes.
|Awards & Honours||26 September 2014||
The Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State for Science and Technology, announced Dr. Gilles Gerbier as the new Canada Excellence Research Chair in particle astrophysics at Queen’s University, a TRIUMF member institution.
|Awards & Honours||19 September 2014||
Iris Dillmann, a research scientist at TRIUMF, was awarded a five-year NSERC Individual Discovery Grant to support her research of neutron-rich exotic isotopes titled “Beta-delayed neutron measurements for nuclear astrophysics.”
|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.

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!
|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.
