Oral history interviews. Nuclear and heavy-ion physics: BNL 814 and 877, 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Jean Barrette (McGill University), William Cleland (University of Pittsburgh), and David Lissauer (University of California, Berkeley).
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. The BNL 814 and 877 are a collaboration of Brookhaven National Laboratory, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, McGill University, the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Sao Paulo, and Wayne State University (other organizations have come and gone) to build and use a detector for the study of particles created in collisions of various ions. The collaboration takes data at the Alternate Gradient Synchrotron at Brookhaven. The detector construction was funded by DOE through a central account at Brookhaven; operations and other expenses funded through participating institutions. The collaboration began in 1986 and was still operating at time of interviewing.
