Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Selected Experiments: BNL-E-734: A Measurement of the Elastic Scattering of Neutrinos from Electrons and Protons, 1990-1991.
Interviews (listed by institutional member of collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Brookhaven National Laboratory: Ted Erickson (engineer), Bruce Gibbard, Michael J. Murtagh (second spokesperson), Charles Pearson (engineer), Martin Van-Lith (technician), D. Hywell White (first spokesperson, interviewed at Los Alamos National Laboratory); Brown University: Milind Diwan (student, interviewed at BNL), Robert E. Lanou (group leader); Osaka University: Yorikiyo Nagashima (group leader), Yoichiro Suzuki (interviewed at the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, University of Tokyo); University of Pennsylvania: Eugene W. Beier, Alfred K. Mann; SUNY, Stony Brook: Michael D. Marx (group leader). Other institutions in collaboration include: KEK-Tsukuba.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. BNL-E-734 was sponsored in part by the U.S.-Japan Agreement. It was an important experimental check, and confirmation, of the Glashow-Weinberg-Salam model of electroweak interactions, it agreed with the model's coupling constants and the value of the Weinberg Angle, which describes the relative importance of the Z particle and photons in electroweak interactions. As of late 1989, this experiment constituted 84% of all the data in the world on electron-neutrino elastic scattering. University of Pennsylvania was previously involved in neutrino-proton scattering experiments with Harvard and Wisconsin. The experiment was approved in 1979 and completed running in 1986.
