• First beam for UCN

    Tuesday, November 22, 2016 (Vancouver). First proton beam was delivered down our new beamline to the spallation target. PHOTO: The celebration in the TRIUMF Main Control Room. This is the source of neutrons for our Ultracold Neutron Source.

    In the future we will use the source to deliver ultracold neutrons to experiments on the fundamental properties of the neutron. Our flagship experiment will be an experiment to measure the electric dipole moment of the neutron. If we find it to be nonzero, it will signify a new source of CP violation, and could help in understanding the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe.
