Experimental Result Viability of new muon g-2 technique proven 20 January 2015 With an experiment in the M15 beamline, a Japan-Canada team demonstrates viability of an alternate muon g-2 measurement technique.
Experimental Result Team Demonstrates Solution to Tc-99m Crisis 05 January 2015 A Canadian team demonstrates the workability of decentralized, non-reactor based production of Tc-99m that eliminates the threat of an isotope shortage, while providing a safe and secure supply chain for Canadian patients.
Student Stories UBC Co-op Brings Business to Tc-99m 28 November 2014 Karen Young, a fourth year commerce student from UBC’s Sauder School of Business, is spending a semester at TRIUMF bridging business and science as she develops a financial model for medical isotope production.
Experimental Result Unravelling the Proton-Radius Puzzle 28 November 2014 A TRIUMF-led theory group is helping to shed light on the "proton-radius" puzzle, where a once "well known" physical property of matter has been called into question by a new experimental result.
Experimental Result LHCb Experiment Confirms TRIUMF Prediction 20 November 2014 The LHCb experiment discovered two new baryons and verified TRIUMF’s Richard Woloshyn and York University’s Randy Lewis prediction about bottom baryons.
Experimental Result New ATLAS Measurement of the Higgs Boson 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.
Experimental Result Postdoc Publishes Theory Breakthrough 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 ARIEL: Switching on the (RF) Power 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.
Student Stories High School Fellowship Winners at TRIUMF 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.
Student Stories Emerging Aboriginal Scholars at TRIUMF 31 July 2014 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.
