The development and production of components for use in research both domestically and internationally is one of the key roles TRIUMF plays in enabling Canadian contributions to international collaborations. ATLAS is one of several international particle detector projects in which TRIUMF contributes deep expertise in design, construction, installation, operations, and data analysis to support.
The laboratory’s Science and Technology Facility constructs some of the world’s most sensitive particle detectors – for matter and antimatter alike.
Several specialized facilities for fabrication, testing, and assembly are used for the development and production of components installed at TRIUMF, as well as other major laboratories such as CERN in Europe. This work is one of the key roles TRIUMF plays in enabling Canadian contributions to international collaborations.
