Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Selected Experiments: IMB: The Irvine-Michigan-Brookhaven Experiment, 1990-1991.
Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Brookhaven National Laboratory: Maurice Goldhaber; Harvard University: Bruce G. Cortez (student, interviewed at Bell Labs); University of California, Irvine: William R. Kropp, Frederick Reines (spokesperson), Henry W. Sobel; University of Illinois, Urbana: Steven Errede (postdoc); University of Michigan: Daniel Sinclair, Lawrence R. Sulak (interviewed at Boston University), John C. Van der Velde (co-spokesperson); University of Michigan and University College, London: Tegid W. Jones.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. IMB searched for proton decay at an underwater salt-mine using an 8,000 metric ton water Cherenkov detector. The collaboration serendipitously detected a supernova which was also detected by the Kamioka underwater detector in Japan. The experiment was approved in 1979.
