Goldhaber, Gerson
Oral history interview with Gerson Goldhaber, 2005 June 22, 23, 24, 2006 February 27, 28 and March 1.
Gerson Goldhaber discusses his early training at Hebrew University in Jerusalem (1942-1947); graduate work at the University of Wisconsin; research at Columbia University (1950-1953); memories of I. I. Rabi. Research at the University of California at Berkeley and at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL). Took part in first experiment at Bevatron. Worked on K-mesons, the tau and theta mesons; measured the radius of interaction, and the difference between the behavior of like and unlike pion pair; Supernova Cosmology Project (SCP); contributed to the design effort of SPEAR (Stanford Positron-Electron Asymmetric Ring) accelerator at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC); co-discovered, and named the Psi particle with George Trilling; Goldhaber found the naked-charm mesons; with colleagues, measured the lifetimes of a number of particles, including the tau lepton, the D mesons, and the B meson; at Stanford Linear Collider (SLC) did measurements of the mass and width of the Z particle, measuring how much of the Z decay went into neutral leptons. With colleague Robert Cahn, he wrote and published the textbook "The Experimental Foundations of Particle Physics." Part of the Supernova Cosmology Project (SCP) since 1989. In 2004, 'Gersonfest' was put on by family and colleagues in his honor.
(1924-2010) German-born American particle physicist and astrophysicist. Ph.D., University of Wisconsin (1950); one of the discoverers of the meson which confirmed the existence of the charm quark; worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with the Supernova Cosmology Project and was a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley.
