Oral history interview with William O. Baker by William O Baker( )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second session begins with an overview of Bell Labs' role in the birth of the solid state era, and the use of Labs' resources for new research programs supporting telecommunications and information handling. He describes the application of research findings in using x-ray diffraction techniques to study crystallinity of polymers to electronics and communications industries and the emergence of polyethylene and polyethylene-like materials throughout all industry. In 1942, Bell Labs became the center of the U.S. rubber Reserve, formed to conserve existing rubber and create synthetic rubber for use during World War II. Baker contributed to the Reserve's scientific planning and work by applying earlier researach on crystalline cellulose esters, polyesters and polyamides. Bell Labs recruited major industrial and university centers and researchers for the project, including I.M. Kolthoff, Debye, and others from Cornell, MIT, Harverd, Princeton and U.S. Rubber. Throughout the interview, scientific themes are related to changes in the organizational structure of Bell Labs, and to patterns of communication within relevant scientific communities
