M11 beamline

The M11 beam channel provides low-intensity beams of pions, muons and positrons for testing and calibrating detectors for particle physics experiments. The typical experiment at a large accelerator like CERN or J-PARC uses complex detectors with many detector subsystems built in different countries, and each subsystem must be tested and verified by their builders in … Continued

Science Technology Facility

TRIUMF’s Science Technology Facility provides the expertise and specialized construction capacity for the design-to-installation creation of state-of-the-art particle detectors. The Science Technology Facility’s two dozen staff have contributed to the fabrication, in part or full, to more than a dozen detectors for subatomic particle and nuclear physics experiments based at TRIUMF and Canadian and international … Continued


ATLAS is one of the largest and most complex particle detectors ever built, one of the world’s leading tools in the search for beyond-Standard Model physics and a key TRIUMF international collaboration. Based at CERN as part of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), ATLAS is one of the largest scientific collaborations in history. As part … Continued


TRIUMF’s Theory Department is unique in Canada as a theoretical team embedded in a world-leading rare isotope laboratory. This context provides a synergistic interface between theorists whose original work is informed by leading-edge experimental technologies and results, and in turn whose independent research guides and inspires experimental approaches.   The Theory Department specializes in two areas: … Continued
