Fixed Target Research at SLAC
Although the research at SLAC after its completion was guided by proposals for specific experiments, it is no accident that the initial program largely consisted of exploitations of the facilities just built. It is also noteworthy that the research period after completion of SLAC was managed along the organizational lines that were used during construction.We maintained the four principal divisions: administrative services, business services, research division, and technical division. The technical division made a seamless transition from managing a large construction project to operating the accelerator. That division, through a newly established experimental facilities department, provided engineering support to the multitude of experimenters.
