Our core mission is supporting the physics community in bringing to reality their project by providing technical resources for the design, construction, and commissioning of experiments and other apparatus. We also develop new technologies that we foresee as enablers of future discoveries and as having strong potential for applications outside physics research. Finally, we foster talent: from training of students to continuous training of group members.
The Science Technology Department can help from the initial experiment detector ideas to commissioning.
The Department is lead by Nigel Hessey, deputy Beatrice Franke. It is organised in five groups with these group leaders:
- Instrumentation Physics Group - Fabrice Retière
- Detector Facility Group - Robert Henderson (deputy Philip Lu)
- Electronics Development Group - Daryl Bishop
- Instrumentation Services Group - Beatrice Franke
- Data Acquisition Group - Pierre-André Amaudruz
To request assistance from the Science Technology Department:
If you have a new, large project, you will have to go through the TRIUMF system of proposal evaluation by the relevant Experiments Evaluation Committee, PPAC, and Gate reviews.
For smaller proposals, or adding new work to existing projects, please fill this form. We encourage you to be as specific as possible to help us evaluate our possible involvement. We will review of the request and contact you with the outcome
