The Summer Studies
Project M/SLAC convened three summer studies in the early 1960s. The summer studies brought together physicists from
other institutions to study a topic related to the proposed twomile electron linear accelerator. The first one was held
in 1960 to study problems related to the design of target facilities. The second and third summer studies, 1962 and 1963,
studied aspects of the prospective experimental use. Not only did the summer studies help shape the development of the
facilities, they helped shape the leadership of the lab. Ballam, Perl, Ritson, and Schwartz, who
all initially came from other institutions as part of a summer study, went on to become group leaders at SLAC.
In 1965 another summer study was held to examine the problems of beam stability in storage rings. It brought
together representatives of most of the laboratories in the world then engaged in highenergy storage ring design,
construction, or operation. The study concluded that highenergy electronpositron storage rings were feasible and
that several modes of operation would allow the required high luminosities to be achieved.
The process was repeated again in the 1970s with PEP Summer Studies.
