Oral history interviews. Materials science: Advanced Light Source Beamline Collaboration (ALS), 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Thomas Calcott (University of Tennessee), David Ederer (Tulane University), Rupert Perera (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory), and Joachim Stohr (IBM Almaden Research Center).
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, Advanced Light Source Beamline Collaboration (ALS) was a collaboration of IBM-Almaden, the University of Wisconsin, Tulane, the University of Tennessee, Lawrence-Berkeley Laboratory, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboartory to build a beamline and end stations for materials science and surface physics at the Advanced Light Source at LBL. All data are taken at LBL. Each participating organization raises its own funds; IBM funds itself. The proposals were drafted in 1990, and the collaboration was still running when the interviews were conducted.
