Oral history interviews. High-Energy Physics. Selected Experiments: SLAC-E-132: A Study of K- P Interactions Using LASS, 1990-1991.
Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Carleton University: Robert K. Carnegie (co-spokesperson), Penny Estabrooks (postdoc), F. Gerald Oakham (student); Stanford Linear Accelerator Center: David W.G.S. Leith (co-spokesperson), Blair Ratcliff (spokesperson), Stephen L. Shapiro.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. SLAC-E-132 used the LASS detector to do a high statistics study of meson states of higher mass, spin, and multiplicity than had been possible with the previous generation of forward spectrometers. LASS was built as a facility to do strange quark physics and had multiple users who contributed materially to its development. This experiment was part of a string including: SLAC-E-127, E-128, E-129, and E-135. 132 was approved in 1977 and completed running in 1978.
