L3 Project 1974-2002 [series]

The L3 Project series (1974-2002, 4 linear feet) concerns the University of Michigan's participation in a large, multi-institutional high-energy physics experiment called L3. Headed by Nobel Prize Laureate (and U-M alumnus) Samuel C.C. Ting of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and based out of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) laboratory, L3 has brought together physicists in more than 50 institutions to develop a large detector and conduct experiments to detect particles produced in the collision of electrons and positrons circulating in the LEP ring. Important results that have come out of L3 include the measurement of the lineshape of the Z0 resonance and achieving unprecedented precision measurements of various physical quantities. The University of Michigan has been a participant in the project since 1983, with its greatest involvement coming in the design and construction of the hadron calorimeter for the detector. Over 20 University of Michigan faculty, research staff, and students have participated in the project, including Department of Physics professors Lawrence W. Jones, Byron P. Roe, J. Keith Riles, and Michael Longo, and research scientists Tofigh Azemoon and Robert C. Ball. Ten Michigan physics doctoral students have published dissertations based on work done on L3.

The L3 Project series is divided into four subseries: National Science Foundation (NSF), General L3 Administration and Michigan Participation, Hadron Calorimeter, and Audiovisual Materials.

National Science Foundation [subseries]

The NSF subseries (1973-2000, 1 linear foot) documents the U-M L3 team's interactions with their primary funding body. The subseries includes proposals, correspondence, and reports documenting the team's involvement in the project. This subseries gives a sense not only of the funding of Michigan participation, but also of its varying emphasis within the Department of Physics over time.

General L3 Administration and Michigan Participation [subseries]

The General L3 Administration and Michigan Participation subseries (1982-2002, 1 linear foot) lends insight into U-M staffing and involvement and the progress of the project as a whole. The subseries consists primarily of correspondence between the team members and other L3 participants and notes and reports documenting involvement in non-hadron calorimeter aspects of the project.
