He was educated at Wolverhampton GrammarSchool before going on to St John's College, Cambridge to study for the short (two year) Mechanical Sciences degree, including a special wartime radio course. He graduated BA in 1943 and then joined the Telecommunications Research Establishment, Malvern, where he was assigned to work on microwave antenna design under D.W.Fry, as part of the ongoing work on developmentof radar. At the end of the war Lawson continued to work at Malvern, although in 1947 he was made a member of the staff of the Atomic Energy Research Establishment (AERE). He undertook experimental work with the new 30 MeV synchrotron. In 1951 Fry’s group wastransferred to the General Physics Division of the AERE at Harwell. Lawson was assigned to working on the klystron, a device for producing high-power microwaves, in a group led by Peter Thonemann. Thonemann was also in charge of the ZETA (Zero Energy Toroidal Assembly) fusion work, and it was through Lawson’s association with Thonemann that he became interested in the topic of nuclear fusion. Lawson also worked with the 1980 MeV cyclotron and on early accelerator proposals. He remained onthe staff of the AERE to 1961, spending 1959-1960 as Research Associate at the W.W. Hansen Laboratories at Stanford where his work included the study of the properties of caesium plasma. In 1961 Lawson transferred to the newly established National Institute for Research in Nuclear Science, based very close to Harwell, an institution shortly to become the Rutherford Laboratory and then the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. He continued his work on accelerators and led the project to build the Variable Energy Cyclotron (for AERE Harwell). He had responsibility for building up the superconducting magnet programmeandretained an interest in new accelerator concepts. In the 1970s he moved onto the study of very high current beams and in 1977 his book The Physics of Charged Particle Beams was published (second edition 1989), which became a classic textbook on particle accelerators. In 1975-1976 Lawson returned to fusion research with a two year sabbatical at the Culham Laboratory, working on a design study of a conceptual fusion power reactor based on the reversedfield pinch principle. JD: Lawson NCUACS 173/4/09 6 He returned to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in 1977 where he continued working on free electron lasers and accelerator design, and also played a leading international role in promoting and critically examining ideas for future accelerators. In the early 1980s he recognized the potential that high-power lasers could have for particle acceleration, and set up a small research group in laser plasma accelerators. He retired in 1987. Lawson was awardedthe University of Cambridge Sc.D. in Physics in 1959 and made a Fellow of the Institute of Physics in 1970. In 1983 he waselected a Fellow of Royal Society ‘for his contributions to the field of applied electromagnetism, in particular the physics of charged particle beams and high temperature plasmas’. He is particularly remembered for the LawsonCriterion, a general measure of a system that defines the conditions needed for a fusion reactor to achieve net power. Formulatedin 1955, it was first published in 1957, in ‘Somecriteria for a power producing thermonuclear reactor’, (Proc. Phys. Soc. vol. 70, pt. 1, no. 445, B, 6-10). Lawson died on 15 January 2008. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION This is a small collection covering aspects of Lawson’s professional career as a physicist in governmentlaboratories from immediately after the Second World Warto his death. Section A, Biographical, includes autobiographical and biographical accounts, including material assembled for an interview by C.A. Muldoon in the course of her Ph.D. research on visualisation, analogy, insight and communication in physics. There is also little material relating to Lawson’s career, including the inauguration of the Variable Energy Cyclotron in 1966. Section B, Papers and publications, is the largest in the collection. It is chiefly memoranda and reports prepared by Lawson from his time at the Telecommunications Research Establishment, Atomic Energy Research Establishment and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, as well as reports produced during his periods in the USA and Japan. Thereis also a setof offprints and photocopies of published papers, including many conference papers. The section concludes with a few book reviews, short articles for the New Scientist and reviews relating to The Physics of Charged Particle Beams. Section C, Lectures, is principally the contents of Lawson's two folders labelled ‘Informal lectures notes' and ‘Copies of lecture note transparencies' (many later lecture notes are in the form of photocopies of Lawson's overhead projector transparencies). However, the distinction between material presented in this section and the 'as published’ lectures in section B is not absolute. A J.D. Lawson NCUACS 173/4/09 7 number of the papers there were given as lectures and conference papers. This section also includes some illustrative material - photographs and transparencies, and notices and abstracts of lectures and talks given by Lawson. Section D, Visits and conferences, presents Lawson's material (chiefly reports) on visits made over the period 1957-1989. It is the contents of two folders labelled 'Conferences' and ‘Moreinteresting visits made’, though as the material contained therein overlapped in terms of both content and date, they are presented in a single sequence. Not all Lawson's travel and conference attendanceis represented in this section; evidence of other travel is represented by drafts of lectures in both sections B and C. Section E, Correspondence, consists of the contents of Lawson's two folders of correspondence.It is a very partial record, for although both incoming and (copies of) outgoing correspondence are included, many of the letters record only one half of an exchange or are individual pieces from a clearly more extended sequence of correspondence. Correspondents represented include Ch’en Chia-erh, Martin Reiser, A.M. Sessler and D.H. Wilkinson. There is also an index of correspondents. T.E. Powell Bath, 2009 J.D.
