Oral history interviews. Materials science: DuPont-Northwestern-Dow Collaborative Access Team (DND-CAT), 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Jerome Cohen (Northwestern University), Joe Georgopoulos (Argonne National Laboratory), Robert Johnson (DuPont Experimental Station), and Roger Leach (DuPont Experimental Station).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A materials science project, Dupont-Northwestern-Dow CAT is a collaboration of the named organizations to build and use a general purpose beamline and multiple end stations at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source. The collaboration has an office at Argonne, where all data will be taken, though some significant end-station instrumentation is being built at the home organizations. Each participating organization contributes a set share of the funds. The project is being built for some 20 obviously interested users and a larger pool of potentially interested scientists who are employed at the participating organizations. The agreement to collaborate was signed in 1991 and was still in operation when the interviews were conducted.
