Some Important Contributions:
"Upper limit for the decay mode mu --> e + gamma," Phys. Rev. Lett. 2: 357 (1959) with D. Berley and M. Bardon.
"Measurement of the momentum spectrum of positrons from muon decay," Phys. Rev. Lett. 14: 449 (1965) with M. Bardon, P. Norton, J. Peoples, and A. Sachs.
"Observation of p-wave b-bbar bound states," Phys. Rev. Lett. 49: 1612 (1982) with the CUSB Collaboration.
- A determination of the beta spectrum in muon decay which gives an
accurate determination of the Michel parameter. The value of the Michel
parameter gives important insight into the nature of the
weak nuclear force. The experimental technique combined the classical idea of 180o mass spectrometer and a novel use of sonic spark chambers.
"Hyperfine splitting of B-mesons and B-production at the Upsilon(5S),"
Phys. Rev. Lett. 65: 2947 (1990) with U. Heintz, D. M. J. Lovelock, M. Narain, R. D. Schamberger, J. Willins, C. Yanagisawa, P. Franzini and P. Tuts.
- Discovery of the first three p wave b-bbar bound states, later followed by another set of three, and a detailed study of their properties.
"Observation of the Top Quark," Phys. Rev. Lett. 74: 2632 (1995)
DZero Collaboration , S. Abachi et al..
- This experiment gave the first indirect observation of excited B-mesons and pioneered a style of new particle searches.
