Department of Physics records, 1870-1983

Series IV: Nevis Cyclotron Laboratory

This short series, in record cartons 28–29, contains primarily of blueprints, photos, and photo negatives. These are organized in three groups. A first group, folders 28.34–29.11, consists of undated photos and photo negatives, organized by the physics researcher who ordered them. They are, for example, charts and diagrams prepared as figures in published research papers; in no case, however, is a record of their intended use preserved. A second group, folders 29.12–29.21, consists of blueprints organized by subject. Representative is a blueprint for "Plunger Assembly, H2 Bubble Chamber." The third group, folders 29.22–29.25, consists of blueprints, together with related correspondence, reports, and notes, related to the construction of a neutron velocity spectrometer at Nevis Laboratory, Irvington-on-Hudson, in the late 1950s.
