Headlines & Research Highlights
The DRAGON experiment has been a mainstay in TRIUMF’s scientific portfolio since 2001, measuring the majority of the world’s radiative capture reactions with rare isotope beams so far and, in the process, making a number of first-in-the-world measurements.
After more than a year of virtual sessions, TRIUMF’s professional development program for undergraduate students is bringing together the laboratory’s Fall 2021 students for a suite of hands-on, 360° professional development workshops scheduled across the Fall term.
Teams working on TRIUMF’s Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory (ARIEL) achieved a major milestone for the facility’s electron linear accelerator (e-linac) by reaching an average beam power of 10 kW at the e-linac's design energy of 30 MeV. The results, which come nearly three months ahead of schedule, mark a major leap in the ramp-up of the accelerator’s output to full capacity and eventual operation.
The clinical-stage oncology company and TRIUMF announced their entry into the next phase of their collaboration agreement for the production of actinium-225.
After 20 years of service to TRIUMF, Jens Dilling will be departing the laboratory on July 31, 2021 to take on a new challenge as the Director of Institutional Strategic Planning at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.
