Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Selected Experiments: SLAC-SP-024: A Proposal for a Large Solid Angle Neutral Detector for SPEAR 2 (The Crystal Ball), 1990-1991.
Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: California Institute of Technology: Charles Peck (group leader), Frank Porter (postdoc); Harvard University: Karl Strauch (group leader); Princeton University: Donald Coyne (group leader, interviewed at University of California, Santa Cruz); Stanford Linear Accelerator Center: Elliott D. Bloom (spokesperson), Fatin Bulos, Mark Oreglia (student, interviewed at University of Chicago).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. SLAC-SP-024 developed a spherical detector composed of sodium iodide crystals. Although proposed before discovery of the J/psi, the detector was well suited to and primarily used for studying the spectra of charm-quark systems. The experiment was continued when the Crystal Ball was taken to DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchroton). The experiment was approved in 1975 and completed running in 1979.
