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. 
Experimental Result Antineutrino Appearance from T2K 24 July 2015 T2K observes three candidate electron antineutrino events in the muon antineutrino beam at SK. TRIUMF's Mark Scott and University of Victoria's Jordan Myslik describe how the collaboration’s latest results are beginning to hint at an answer for understanding asymmetry in the Universe.
Awards & Honours Accelerators Attract Marie-Curie Fellow 22 July 2015 Marie-Curie International Outgoing fellow Tobi Junginger knew he needed to see the bigger picture to grasp the small details. The German native will call Vancouver home for two years while he conducts research on accelerators with the RF/SRF group.
Student Stories Imaging Triple Negative Breast Cancer 13 July 2015 How does a physician image a cancer that does not respond to common techniques? This is the question that Thompson Rivers University co-op student Carlee Poleschuk hopes to answer during her 8-month work term at TRIUMF.
Workshops & Conferences IsoSiM pushes for professional development 19 June 2015 The Isotopes for Science and Medicine (IsoSiM) program will continue to further their goal of training multidisciplinary scientists through their first ever summer school, hosted at TRIUMF from June 22 to June 30.
Experimental Result IRIS Observes Long-Sought Li-11 Resonance 09 June 2015 Exploiting the world-leading intensity of ISAC’s Lithium-11 beams, the IRIS experiment observes soft dipole resonance and publishes first results in Physical Review Letters.
University Stories Visitor enhances international collaborations 08 June 2015 Physicist Elizabeth Padilla-Rodal hopes to strengthen the collaborative environment in low energy nuclear physics research between TRIUMF and her home institution in Mexico.
Awards & Honours PhD demonstrates the power of collaboration 19 May 2015 The winning entry in TRIUMF’s Life Sciences Peer Evaluation Committee (LSPEC) Student Poster Event is just the tip of the iceberg of PhD candidate Joseph Lau’s success.
