TRIUMF’s (ultra)cool experiment fires up with the help of a team at The University of Winnipeg. UWinnipeg’s flagship particle physics experiment, in collaboration with TRIUMF, is celebrating the important milestone of producing its first ultracold neutrons (UCN). Researchers involved in leading aspects of the experimental program are Dr. Jeff Martin, Dr. Blair Jamieson, Dr. Chris Bidinosti, and Dr. Russ Mammei.

The team was recently awarded a $15.7 million CFI award to upgrade the UCN source and to build Canada’s first experimental search of a neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM). If an nEDM is detected it could help explain the matter anti-matter asymmetry observed in the universe.
