American Institute of Physics. Center for History of Physics. Study of Multi-Institutional Collaborations. Phase III: Ground-Based Astronomy, Materials Science, Heavy-Ion and Nuclear Physics, Medical Physics, and Computer-Mediated Collaborations.
Oral history interviews. Materials science: Hybrid organic/inorganic semiconductors (HOIS), 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Donald Burland (IBM Almaden Research Center), Stephen Forrest (Princeton University), and William Steier (University of Southern California).
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, HOIS was a collaboration of Princeton, the University of Southern California, Hughes Laboratories, IBM, and the University of Colorado to study the semiconducting properties of various composites and the potential for using composites in manufacturing. The collaboration has no physical location. Princeton provides financial administration. Funded by ARPA under the Advanced Materials Processing Program, the collaboration functioned from 1992-1996.
