In the fascinating realm of nuclear physics, two sister facilities, DRAGON (ISAC-I) and EMMA (ISAC-II), have been making strides in advancing our understanding of nuclear reactions and their astrophysical implications, including how and at what rate elements are formed within different life stages of stars, including their deaths in powerful explosions.
Headlines & Research Highlights
This morning, TRIUMF welcomed BC Health Minister, Adrian Dix, into the Meson Hall, where he announced the province is investing $32 million through $21 million to BC Cancer for the new cyclotron and radiopharmacy laboratory and approximately $11 million to TRIUMF to advance research. In addition, the BC Cancer Foundation has provided $3.5 million to support capital investments and $15 million in funding for critical cancer research, for a total of $50.5 million.
TRIUMF physicists on the ALPHA-g team, an international collaboration based at CERN, were involved in an experiment that CBC Radio's Quirks and Quarks show host, Bob McDonald, has deemed as the second most Significant Science Story of 2023
As part of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with General Fusion signed in October 2023, TRIUMF is undertaking the development of critical diagnostic technologies to support General Fusion’s Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF) demonstration, also called Lawson Machine 26 (LM26).
With a wave goodbye to departing colleagues from the 13th annual of meeting the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (Hi-Lumi or HL-LHC) project collaboration, Canadian accelerator physics researchers are now turning their sights on their next major objective: the fabrication of key cryomodules that will host specialized `crab’ cavities as part of the high luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
QRT Inc. and the PIF & NIF team at TRIUMF are taking new steps to further strengthen a collaborative program of research and development at the laboratory’s neutron irradiation facilities (NIF), bolstering an existing memorandum of understanding (MOU) and bringing online new analysis technologies to improve test accuracy and efficiency.
