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.
Operation resumed at reduced RF voltage 28 October 2015 The cyclotron resumed operation, albeit at a reduced RF voltage, yesterday evening and is presently delivering ~35 µA to BL2A and beam as needed to BL1B and BL2C1 for PIF operation.
Cyclotron offline due to RF 27 October 2015 The cyclotron has been off since Sunday afternoon due to RF problems. Repairs have been made and the RF group is in the process of bringing the RF back on.
Awards & Honours Reflections on the Nobel Prize in Physics 26 October 2015 News that the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Takaaki Kajita (University of Tokyo) and Art McDonald (Queen's University) sparked a day of celebration at the lab. Read on for reflections about TRIUMF's involvement in the SNO experiment.
A busy couple of days coming up… 22 October 2015 As was the case last night, the cyclotron is running normally and delivering ~105 µA to BL1A, 35 µA to BL2A, and ~95 µA to BL2C4. This is expected to continue overnight.
Experimental Result Yann Seimbille's Three Big Ideas 22 October 2015 TRIUMF continues to grow its team of world-class researchers with the addition of Dr. Yann Seimbille. Yann joins TRIUMF from Switzerland’s Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève and hopes to realize three goals.
