Presentation Transcript

  1. A View from NSFThe Early Years of CESRDavid BerleyUniversity of MarylandMay 31, 2008 Two Aspects of Cornell’s Success in the International Arena of Larger Laboratories Technical Innovation First Rate Management

  2. MY Years at NSF • 1974 – 1977 • 1980 – 1993 (Cornell CESR) • 1993 -2000 • My first recollection of CESR • Late 1974 or early 1975 • After the J/ Ψ discovery • ~Two-Year process of approval

  3. J Particle PRL 33 1402 (1974) Ψ Particle PRL 33 1402 (1974) Four known vector mesons ρ, ω,Φ,J/Ψ. Were there others?

  4. IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, Vol. NS-24, No.3, June 1977 CESR - AN ELECTRON POSITRON COLLIDING BEAM FACILITY AT CORNELL M. Tigner Cornell University Ithaca, N.Y. 14853 CESR Proposal Proposal May 1975 Vernier Injection Resulted in a crucial reduction in cost. SCIENCE, VOL. 204, 18 MAY 1979

  5. Construct PEP e+e- facilityat SLAC • Construct ISABELLE at Brookhaven • Support R&D for 1 TeV Fixed Target & Collider at Fermilab • 8 GeV e+e- facility at Cornell not recommended in FY 1977 • The HEPAP of 1974 also recommended PEP and ISABELLE for construction. • Cornell and Fermilab embarked on vigorous R&D Programs

  6. CESR approval waited until 1977 Two years before the Upsilon Discovery PRL 39 252 (1977)

  7. FIRST CESR PUBLICATIONS April 1980

  8. CESR CLEO Upgrade • National Science Board Approval • November 1984 , $37.38 million • “Jewel of the NSF” • CESR • Higher luminosity • CLEO • Extensively rebuilt • Project Execution • Outstanding Management

  9. Superconducting RF • R&D began in about 1980 • Proposal to build a small radius e+e- collider at the Z0 • Jefferson Lab (CEBAF) cavities • Longer Term Program • High Q, Inexpensive Accelerating Structures • Applications • Improved CESR Luminosity • B-Factory in CESR Tunnel • TeV e+e- Linear Collider • Synchrotron Light Source • Energy Recovery Linac

  10. Epilog • CESR dominated b-physics • Until BarBar and Belle • Continued innovation will guaranty future success • Best wishes for the future
