South African Scientists from UWC and UniZulu run a successful experiment @ TRIUMF in Canada during  July 2018

TRIUMF is Canada’s Accelerator Centre and National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics. TRIUMF is owned and operated by a consortium of 20 Canadian universities. The TRIUMF facilities are operated as user facilities with free and open access for peer-reviewed, publishable research. We welcome the recent collaboration with South African students, faculty, and researchers, and embrace future collaborations and research proposals with the University of the Western Cape and the University of Zululand in all fields of TRIUMF-related science. We are looking forward to new proposals for experiments at our accelerator facilities for nuclear physics, particle physics, molecular and material studies, and quantum materials. Congratulations to you and the team on the successful experiment. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions, or if you see opportunities for me to help.

After a difficult beam delivery, very high yields of accelerated 82Sr beams were successfully delivered to the TIGRESS array. Senamile Masango (UWC) will analyze these data for her PhD.

It’s Never Over till It’s over
“The Stars aligned and everything came together in the end. We have a great data set for 82Sr. Congratulations to everyone who worked tirelessly to make this happen. We must also remember to thank the RF and Electrical Services groups , Cyclotron and ISAC ops and beam delivery including CSB and TRILIS Well done everyone. Have a safe trip home to Capetown. Looking forward to reading the paper. Cheers!”
