Oral history interviews. Materials science: Center on Polymer Interface and Macromolecular Assembly (CPIMA), 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Frank Curtis (Stanford University), John Raybolt (IBM Almaden Research Center), and Jerome Swalen (Stanford University).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A materials science project, CPIMA was a collaboration of Stanford University, IBM-Almaden, and the University of California, Davis to support and coordinate research on polymer interfaces and macromolecular assemblies. The collaboration has no physical location beyond an office at Stanford. Roughly 20 faculty-level scientists and 40-45 postdocs and graduate students participate. Funded by NSF, the collaboration was established in 1994 and continues to operate.
