- Biographical Essay from the 2003 SLAC Employee Service Awards Program, in celebration of
Professor Garwin's December 3, 2002 40th anniversary at SLAC:
"After completing his degree at the University of Chicago and working in the tech industry
in Southern California, Ed Garwin joined SLAC Research Division in late Fall 1962. Ed was heavily involved
in the design of the Linac Beam Dump and consulted on various accelerator vacuum issues. Following completion
of the Linac construction, Ed's newly-formed Physical Electronics group provided a variety of services and
personnel toward the SPEAR storage ring project, including Ed's suggestion that SPEAR would make a fine light
source for surface science investigations. Under Ed's leadership, PEL evolved into a surface science and materials
analysis facility for SLAC and engaged in such exotic projects as ion sputter-microthinning of diamonds, coating
of superconducting flux-concentrator tubes with niobium, and the first use of gallium arsenide as a polarized
photoemission electron source for accelerators. Numerous other interesting projects, small
and large, have passed through Edís group over the decades, always to be met with interest and ingenuity. Edís
current interests are focused on high current (recently achieved), very-high polarization (sneaking up on it)
gallium arsenide-type sources for the NLC, and the causes and remedies for high electric-field breakdown in
accelerating structures." (SLAC Accession 2001-002)
