Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Probes.
Interviews were conducted with members of the experiment's collaboration using a structured question set covering all stages in the collaborative research process: the formation of the collaboration and its personnel; the drafting of the proposal and the experiment's relationship to current theory and experimental techniques; funding for U.S. groups by the National Science Foundation or Department of Energy; delegation of responsibilities for design, construction, and testing of the experiment's detector and its components; use of subcontractors; development of software for data collection and analysis; running of the experiment; organization of data analysis such as the division of topics and location of analysis; drafting and presenting results in journals and at conferences and other meetings; assessment of the experiment's success; the collaboration's decision-making style; role of the spokesperson, graduate students, and postdocs; impact of internationalism; patterns of communication; records creation, use, distribution, and retention; also, comments on the experiment's accelerator site, the interviewee's home institution, and trends in graduate education in high-energy physics.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences."Probes" are in-depth studies of three highly significant collaborations: the discoveries of the psi at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) and the upsilon at Fermilab, and the CLEO experiment and the origins of the Cornell Electron Storage Ring at Cornell University.
