Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Selected Experiments: FNAL-E-715: Precision Measure of the Decay Sigma- -- N E- NU, 1990-1991
Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory: Joseph Lach (group leader); University of Chicago: Roland Winston (group leader); University of Iowa: Edward McCliment (group leader), Charles Newsom; Yale University: Peter S. Cooper (spokesperson).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. FNAL-E-715 was a response to experimental studies implying that the beta decay of Sigma- violated the Cabibbo theory of weak interactions. The collaboration proposed to use its previously used beam apparatus and wire chambers (FNAL-E-497), augmented by electron detectors, to collect more than one hundred times the world sample of sigma- beta decay events. The results upheld the Cabibbo theory. This Soviet/US collaboration did a string of experiments, including FNAL-E-761. 715 was approved in 1982 and completed running 1984.
