TRIUMF Dragon

ISAC and DRAGON, the Detector of Recoils And Gammas Of Nuclear reactions

TRIUMF has long been addressing big questions about the origins of matter in our universe by studying the interactions among elementary particles or essential nuclei.  The DRAGON experiment at TRIUMF is an apparatus designed to measure the rates of nuclear reactions that are important in astrophysics and the formation of the chemical elements. The big question we are asking is, “Where do the elements around us come from?” and “What happens inside a supernova and what does it produce?”  One new experiments at TRIUMF, S1227, recently looked at a process that creates lithium and neutrinos within ancient stars.
