|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.
|Student Stories||15 August 2014||
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.

For four years, TRIUMF has been involved with the Emerging Aboriginal Scholars program. This year, TRIUMF hosted two high school students, Genevieve Capilano from North Vancouver and Liam Gamble from Prince Rupert. Read on for accounts of their experience at the lab.
|Experimental Result||28 July 2014||
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.
|Experimental Result||10 July 2014||
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.
