The Robert Vose Langmuir papers document only a small portion of Langmuir's work. Notably
absent is material on the Caltech synchrotron. Files include technical reports from the
General Electric period, with an acccount of the discovery of synchrotron radiation by
Pollock; patent documents beginning in 1945; course notes and problem sets from Caltech;
and a selection of research and writing projects from the 1940s through 1990.
