Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Selected Experiments: SLAC-E-137: Search for Low Mass, Metastable Neutral Particles at SLAC, 1990-1991.
Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Stanford Linear Accelerator Center: Stanley Ecklund, Finn Halbo (engineer), W. Ralph Nelson; Virginia Institute of Technology: Bin Lu (student, interviewed at FNAL), Luke W. Mo (spokesperson). Other institutions in the collaboration include: Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. SLAC-E-137 was a crucial test of theories that advocated the existence of axions, although none had been found. 137 did not find any axions either. A classic beam dump into hot water under a hill. The experiment was approved in 1980 and completed running in 1982.
