Charlie Townes at Brookhaven

  • Walter D. Knight


Charles Townes went to Columbia University in the late 1940s, and spent considerable time at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in the summer of 1949.1 was spending my second summer at BNL, having essentially completed a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer in the previous twelve months, and began preliminary experiments in the summer of 1949. Charles participated actively in discussions and seminars at the Lab, and we saw him often in the Nuclear Moments Laboratory, whose program also included a project on microwave spectroscopy of molecules.
