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.
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.
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.
Student Stories From High School Fellow to PhD Student 28 April 2015 In just five years, Anffany Chen went from being a TRIUMF high school fellow to a UBC PhD candidate studying condensed matter theory. Her rapid journey from science enthusiast to emerging physics scholar is an inspiration to students everywhere.
Experimental Result Baartman scores touchdown in magnet design 23 April 2015 Rick Baartman has changed the shapes of magnets used to focus particle beams.
Experimental Result Fleming Spies a New Bond 08 April 2015 Don Fleming and coworkers apply muon science to reveal new type of chemical bond.
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.
