Carpenter, John M. (John Marland), 1935-
Oral history interview with John M. Carpenter, 2008 December 17, 2010 May 3 and November 15.
In this interview, John Carpenter discusses topics such as: his graduate school work in nuclear engineering; his early professorship at the University of Michigan; going to the Reactor Testing Station in Idaho to learn about neutron scattering; beginning work at Argonne National Laboratory; developing the first-ever pulsed spallation neutron sources equipped for neutron scattering, ZING-P and ZING-P'; development and implemention of the intense pulsed neutron source (IPNS); becoming an advisor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory; spallation neutron source (SNS); his retirement; slow neutron scattering; Motoharu Kimura and winning the Clifford G. Shull prize.
Best known for originating the technique for using accelerator-induced intense pulses of neutrons for research use. He developed the first pulsed neutron source that was developed into the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source at Argonne National Laboratory. His many awards include the Clifford G. Shull Prize in Neutron Sciences, which he won in 2006.
