TRIUMF

TRIUMF is Canada’s national laboratory for nuclear and particle physics research and one of the world’s leading subatomic physics research laboratories. It is also home to the Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC).

As an institution, TRIUMF shares the cooperative spirit we embrace, and our faculty has close collaborative ties with the team at TRIUMF.

SBQMI Professors Andrew MacFarlane and Rob Kiefl have led the development of the beta detected nuclear magnetic resonance (β-NMR) facility at TRIUMF along with Professor Chow from the University of Alberta and TRIUMF’s own Dr. Kreitzman.

β-NMR is an exotic form of NMR in which the nuclear spin precession signal is detected through the beta decay of a radioactive nucleus. It takes advantage of the new world-class radioactive ion beam facility.

The successful development of this β-NMR facility is a recent example of the success of our ongoing collaboration with TRIUMF and represents only one of the many cooperative opportunities between our institutions.
