Accelerating discovery and innovation
State-of-the-art infrastructure is the bedrock of cutting-edge research and technology development. It enhances our capacity to perform at world-class levels, and acts as a catalyst for dynamic interactions between disciplines. Improving Canada’s performance requires access to leading facilities and infrastructure that empowers research teams and tools.
As Canada’s particle accelerator centre and a global leader in accelerator science and technology, TRIUMF attracts scientists and users from across Canada and around the world. We excel in building and operating high-performing, unique accelerator systems featuring a wide variety of particle beams — from protons and electrons to rare isotopes and muons. These systems drive multidisciplinary science programs, from nuclear and particle physics and quantum materials to applications in nuclear medicine, telecommunications, and aerospace.
