Awards & Honours Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics 09 November 2015 This prize is awarded jointly to the Daya Bay, Kamland, SNO, Super-K, and T2K/K2K collaborations “for the fundamental discovery of neutrino oscillations, revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics.”
Awards & Honours Winning Photographs Revealed 04 November 2015 Congratulations to the Vancouver photographers for their winning photos in TRIUMF’s photo competition, part of the Global Physics Photowalk 2015.
Experimental Result Computing the Heart of Matter 03 November 2015 An international team of theoretical physicists has succeeded for the first time in calculating important properties of the Calcium-48 nucleus, using America's largest supercomputer.
Awards & Honours Reflections on the Nobel Prize in Physics 26 October 2015 News that the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Takaaki Kajita (University of Tokyo) and Art McDonald (Queen's University) sparked a day of celebration at the lab. Read on for reflections about TRIUMF's involvement in the SNO experiment.
Experimental Result Yann Seimbille's Three Big Ideas 22 October 2015 TRIUMF continues to grow its team of world-class researchers with the addition of Dr. Yann Seimbille. Yann joins TRIUMF from Switzerland’s Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève and hopes to realize three goals.
University Stories The Sounds of Science 28 September 2015 TRIUMF’s Ewan Hill recently presented a collaborative music project, disCERN, at Switzerland’s Montreux Jazz Festival that had dozens of patrons dancing in their seats as they experienced physics in an entirely new way.  
Workshops & Conferences Exploring Science Through Labyrhythyms 18 September 2015 During a recent seminar, David Harris dove into the motivation behind his ‘art meets science’ research program at TRIUMF and sampled his sound art creations.
Student Stories TRIUMF’s First Ever Erich Vogt Fellow 20 August 2015 Jonathan Zhang was awarded the Erich Vogt First Year Student Research Experience fellowship, which gives outstanding first year students hands-on experience on a summer research project here at TRIUMF.
Experimental Result Setting the trap for Ultra-Cold Neutrons 19 August 2015 The team behind TRIUMF’s Ultra-Cold Neutron project reflects on their progress during this recent shutdown period and assesses their final steps towards realizing a first production of ultra-cold neutrons by early 2017.
Experimental Result PIENU Experiment Seeks A Winning Hand 07 August 2015 PIENU's latest results have stunned collaborators, providing double the precision of the previous best measurement and limiting speculation on new physics that would require energies far over that accessible by the world's most powerful accelerator.
