Hansen can justly be credited with being the initiator of microwave and electron accelerator activities at Stanford. He was an extraordinarily gifted physicist, an excellent theoretician interested in basic processes, and at the same time a “hands-on” experimentalist. ” I knew him through casual contacts only; sadly, he died in 1949 from chronic lung disease one year before I joined the Stanford faculty. Hansen had been a good friend of my mentor and fatherin-law, Jesse W. M. DuMond. He was truly the “uncommon man” to quote an award that he received.

Coincidence counting rate between the two γ-ray counters as a function of the correlation angle between them, resulting from neutral pion production from an internal synchrotron target. (From W. K. H. Panofsky, J. Steinberger, and J. 28) pion as emitted. 29 The angular distribution of both neutral and charged pions, when compared with theoretical predictions, confirmed the psuedoscalar nature of the pions. Working with Steinberger was an exciting experience. He was an absolutely dedicated experimenter who worked continuously while the synchrotron was in operation, essentially living off candy bars.

I also gave quite a few other talks on recent developments in microwave technology and associated fields. The problem of controlling the field distribution in the 40-foot long accelerating cavity proved to be more difficult than anticipated. 2), and these were the units exhaustively modeled by the microwave group. However, because each successive cell had to increase in length to match the increasing velocity of the proton, the electromagnetic fields of successive sections did not exactly match, and therefore, the field distribution in the entire cavity did not actually produce the uniformity desired.
