(Sixth Week)

Chairman: J.P. Blewett, Brookhaven National Laboratory


The final week of the Summer Study, under John Blewett, was a speculative survey of the probable impact of superconducting magnets on the accelerator field. The atmosphere was generally confident and optimistic; superconducting accelerators are surely just over the horizon. A day during this week was devoted to an allied field, the use of pure, but not superconducting, metals at cryogenic temperature. Here also the prospects appear to be bright. Finally, the chairman of all of the week-long sessions presented summaries of their weeks. The study closed amid expressions of mutual admiration and self-satisfaction.
