Headlines & Research Highlights
On Friday, January 31st, the TRIUMF community came together in celebration for the 2020 Mid-Winter Celebration at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond.
Recently discovered ripples of spacetime called gravitational waves could contain evidence to prove the theory that life survived the Big Bang because of a phase transition that allowed neutrino particles to reshuffle matter and anti-matter.
Researchers from the University of Guelph and Atomic Energy of France recently published a study in Nature Scientific Reports that investigates how the chemistry of atoms can be affected by confinement within nanostructures – an investigation with potential implications for long-term safe storage of nuclear waste, novel ways of generating and storing hydrogen as a clean energy source, and new technologies for capturing and reusing greenhouse gases.
Creating a science podcast: it had always been a dream for Dr. Pietro Giampa. Now, with the support of the TRIUMF Community Fund, he’s using podcasts to not only explore the wonder of science, but also to share the personal stories of the many people at TRIUMF.
To all who have been part of the TRIUMF journey, thank you and happy holidays.
On November 28, a diverse group of Canadian quantum computing researchers gathered at TRIUMF to discuss the applications of quantum techniques within a variety of fields in physics - including atomic, molecular, and optics (AMO).
