Subatomic physics research at the University of Manitoba

Welcome to the Manitoba Subatomic Physics Group. We have an internationally recognized research program in precision low-energy measurements of the fundamental symmetries in nature, making it the pre-eminent university-based group in this field in Canada. This is complemented by strategic theoretical efforts, and is supported through agreements with the TRIUMF National Laboratory and international facilities including Argonne and Jefferson Labs (US). A new collaboration has also been formed recently to do experiments in fundamental neutron physics at the Spallation Neutron Source in Oak Ridge, TN. The group will continue to play a leadership role in large collaborations including a proposal to create a world-leading ultra-cold neutron facility at TRIUMF.
