Awards & Honours Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics 09 November 2015 This prize is awarded jointly to the Daya Bay, Kamland, SNO, Super-K, and T2K/K2K collaborations “for the fundamental discovery of neutrino oscillations, revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics.”
36-hour maintenance starting tomorrow 08 November 2015 There is a 36-hour maintenance period scheduled to start at 08:30 Monday.
Awards & Honours Winning Photographs Revealed 04 November 2015 Congratulations to the Vancouver photographers for their winning photos in TRIUMF’s photo competition, part of the Global Physics Photowalk 2015.
Experiment switchover at ISAC tonight 03 November 2015 The cyclotron is currently delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 60 µA to BL2A, and nA as needed to BL2C1. The BL2A current will probably be reduced to 35 µA later this evening while BL2C will continue to switch between PIF and STF for the next few shifts.
Experimental Result Computing the Heart of Matter 03 November 2015 An international team of theoretical physicists has succeeded for the first time in calculating important properties of the Calcium-48 nucleus, using America's largest supercomputer.
Current Events The Race to Space 03 November 2015 Eight university-student teams in the Canadian Satellite Design Competition return to TRIUMF to test their satellite components in a realistic simulated space setting.
Maintenance tomorrow 02 November 2015 The cyclotron is still running at a reduced RF dee voltage but is delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 60 µA to BL2A, and nA as needed to BL2C1. There is maintenance tomorrow; the major task will be investigating the ongoing cyclotron RF issues and balancing cooling water pressures in the system.
Schedule change at ISAC 31 October 2015 Cyclotron Operations is currently in the midst of switching from BL2C4 to BL2C1. Once that’s complete, we expect to deliver ~35 µA to BL2A and nA as needed to BL2C1 and BL1B overnight.
Quick update 29 October 2015 The cyclotron is delivering 35 µA to BL2A and nA as needed to BL1B and BL2C1 for PIF, albeit at a reduced RF voltage, while at ISAC 9Li is being sent to TUDA for experiment S1540.
Current Events HALO: Detector of Opportunity 29 October 2015 The international SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS) recently welcomed SNOLAB’s Helium and Lead Observatory (HALO) to its global network of neutrino detectors.
