Abstract:
Rare isotopes are the new frontier for fundamental studies in nuclear physics but also for medical application for the diagnosis and treatment of tumors. Rare isotopes have been produced at TRIUMF since the late nineties. A new facility, ARIEL, will increase such production three fold.

HIDEKI TANIMURA

Abstract:
The Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effect is a spectral distortion in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), due to up-scattering of CMB photons by high energy electrons in clusters of galaxies or any cosmic structure. The Planck satellite mission has measured the spectral distortion with great sensitivity and has produced a full-sky SZ (y) map, which can be used to trace the large-scale structure of the Universe.

ANDREW JAMES MACDONALD

Abstract:
At the atomic scale, surfaces exhibit a rich variety of physical phenomena that can be probed using a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM). The STM measures the quantum tunnelling of electrons between a metallic tip and conducting sample and can be used to characterize the nanoscale surface. This thesis presents STM measurements taken at low-temperature in ultra-high vacuum, which are used to characterize two different nanoscale environments: the noble metal surface states and magnetic atoms deposited on a thin-film of magnesium oxide.

SHIRIN SABOURI

Abstract:
In this thesis, a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) quantitative T2 mapping technique, called Luminal water imaging (LWI), has been developed and used for non-invasive detection and grading of prostatic tumours.
