|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.

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.

In the year since the ARIEL building was constructed, teams across the lab have intensified efforts towards the commissioning of ARIEL’s e-linac. On July 18, the e-linac completed the first acceleration of beam through the e-linac superconducting injector cryomodule to the 10 MeV beam dump.
|Awards & Honours||24 July 2014||
Congratulations to the ARIEL team, as well our engineering consultants Stantec Consulting Ltd., Applied Engineering Solutions Ltd. and Bush, Bohlman & Partners Ltd, recipients of the 2013 ACEC-BC’s Engineering Excellence Award of Merit.

Recently, the DRAGON facility ran the highest mass radiative-capture experiment ever performed with a radioactive beam, and in so doing, probed the upper mass limit for nucleosynthesis in novae.
|Awards & Honours||09 July 2014||
Scientists involved with radioactive-beam experiments at TRIUMF have a new reference guidebook that will prove to be an invaluable resource. ISAC and ARIEL: The TRIUMF Radioactive Beam Facilities and the Scientific Program contains information about each step of the beam's path and the future of ARIEL.

From the low energy electrons in CRT monitors to the tremendous near-light speed protons of the LHC, particle accelerators are everywhere. Accelerators are more commonplace than you might expect, with applications ranging from manufacturing to energy production to agriculture.

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.
