Note Compiled by Jeannine Alton and Julia Latham- Jackson

Administrative history:
Douglas Richard Chick was born in Hastings, Sussex, in 1916. His father was an officer in the Indian army, as a result of which his early education took place in various army garrison schools in U.K. and abroad (see CSAC 72.2.80/A.2, CSAC 72.2.80/A.3, CSAC 72.2.80/A.7 and Summary of Career). On returning to England in 1932, he attended Dartford Technical College before commencing a full-time sandwich course at Woolwich Polytechnic and a student apprenticeship with Johnson and Phillips Ltd. in 1933. (See CSAC 72.2.80/A.4, CSAC 72.2.80/A.5, CSAC 72.2.80/A.8, CSAC 72.2.80/A.9.)
After graduating from Woolwich in 1937 with a B.Sc. (Eng.) and a Higher National Diploma in Electrical Engineering, Chick began work as a Junior Scientific Officer at the Signals Experimental Establishment, Woolwich, engaged on research and development of military radio and radio jamming equipment. He continued to attend Woolwich Polytechnic in his spare time, doing research on gas discharge tubes for an M.Sc. degree (CSAC 72.2.80/A.11, CSAC 72.2.80/A.12). On the outbreak of the Second World War he joined the Ministry of Supply, working at Bawdsey and Christchurch on radar and low flying aircraft defence equipment. He was promoted to Scientific Officer in 1941, and spent the remainder of the war doing research on various aspects of radar including searchlight radar control, for which he received a wartime inventor's award in 1946 (see CSAC 72.2.80/A.14). He also filed several patent specifications for work done during this period (see CSAC 72.2.80/A.27). Other papers relating to Chick's career before 1946 are to be found at CSAC 72.2.80/A.5, CSAC 72.2.80/A.6, CSAC 72.2.80/A.10, CSAC 72.2.80/B.1.
In 1946 Chick joined the Research Laboratory of Associated Electrical Industries Ltd. at Aldermaston, where he was appointed Section Leader of the Nuclear Physics Section. He later became Group Leader of the newly-formed Nuclear Sciences Group (see CSAC 72.2.80/B.14). A considerable part of the collection relates to work at A.E.I. Aldermaston, though the record is far from complete. There are a few notebooks covering some of Chick's early research on accelerators (CSAC 72.2.80/B.2 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.5) but the remaining material (B.6 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.69) mainly consists of memoranda, correspondence, research reports, notes of meetings, etc., mostly from the late 1950s up to about 1962. Included with these is a collection of press-cuttings assembled by Chick, mainly relating to research on controlled thermonuclear reactions at A.E.I. Aldermaston and elsewhere (see CSAC 72.2.80/B.39). Drafts for lectures and published papers re research in progress at A.E.I. are to be found in Section C.
In 1963 Chick moved to become Research Manager of the Vickers Company Research Laboratory, Ascot, where he remained until 1966. Papers relating to this period are to be found at CSAC 72.2.80/B.70 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.83.
In 1966 Chick was appointed Professor and Head of the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the new University of Surrey (formerly Battersea College of Advanced Technology). Having spent most of his life working in industry, Chick was convinced of the importance and mutual advantage of close cooperation between the technological universities and industry, and much of his work at Surrey was directed towards promoting this aim. Among other things he organised collaborative Ph.D. programmes and industrial research fellowships, introduced a compulsory industrial year for undergraduates, and formed an Industrial Electronics Group which made the expertise of his academic staff available to industry on a contract research basis. Most of the speeches and lectures in Section D emphasise the importance of collaboration with industry and there are also several folders documenting the 'Working Party on Continuing Development and Education for Engineers' (CSAC 72.2.80/D.12 - CSAC 72.2.80/D.26) which was set up to make arrangements for Surrey to help in the task of keeping engineers in industry in touch with the latest technological developments.
The remainder of Section D deals mainly with the setting up of a research group on Ion Implantation which grew in a short time to achieve an international reputation. There are also a few of Chick's own research notes from his last years at Surrey.
In addition to Chick's own papers there are a number of lectures and memoranda in the collection by colleagues at A.E.I. Aldermaston and elsewhere. Most of these are to be found in Section B, and they are itemised in the body of the catalogue, but special mention should be made of a number of items by or relating to D. Gabor, as follows: CSAC 72.2.80/A.16, CSAC 72.2.80/B.9, CSAC 72.2.80/B.17, CSAC 72.2.80/B.18, CSAC 72.2.80/B.19, CSAC 72.2.80/B.20, CSAC 72.2.80/B.21, CSAC 72.2.80/B.40, CSAC 72.2.80/C.4 - CSAC 72.2.80/C.7. See also items by Sir John Cockcroft (B.12, CSAC 72.2.80/C.32) and Sir George Thomson (B.40). Correspondence, memoranda, etc. by T.E. Allibone are to be found passim in Section B.

Contents:
Letter from R.L. Fortescue to Chick The second paragraph reads:
'I have asked about the steps that should be taken if you should decide to change from the proton accelerator as a subject for your thesis. The Van der Graaff (sic) work is thought to be too far removed from the proposed subject to be included even as a supporting thesis, and there is no doubt that if the helix work had to be abandoned, the best thing to do would be to re-register with a new heading. This means 5 years from the date re-registering, of course. So on the whole the procedure is not to be recommended. Work on focussing is, I believe, your best subject, as it would be of wider outside interest; but the electron model would be quite suitable as a thesis subject without any other work.'

RESEARCH IN GOVERNMENT AND INDUSTRIAL LABORATORIES  CSAC 72.2.80/B  1939-66


Related information: Lectures and papers relating to research in progress at A.E.I. Aldermaston, including work on Sceptre and the Merlin research reactor, will be found in Section C, especially CSAC 72.2.80/C.11 - CSAC 72.2.80/C.36.

Contents:
CSAC 72.2.80/B.1 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.83
The material is divided as follows:
B.1 Ministry of Supply
B.2 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.69 Associated Electrical Industries Ltd. Research Laboratory, Aldermaston
B.70 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.83 Vickers Company Research Laboratory, Ascot
The majority of this Section relates to Chick's work at A.E.I. Aldermaston where he was Section Leader, Nuclear Physics Section, 1946-58, and Group Leader, Nuclear Sciences Group, 1958-63. Chick has outlined his major areas of work at Aldermaston as follows (see CSAC 72.2.80/A.26):
'1) Particle accelerations and low energy nuclear physics: based on design and construction of two Van de Graaf (sic) accelerators for use up to 4 MeV, and a unique RF travelling wave accelerator for protons and deuterons.
2) Thermonuclear and plasma research: with Sir George Paget Thomson and in collaboration with UKAEA. Design and development of metal walled discharge tubes (1959 'Sceptre' series of devices).
3) Neutron physics research using a medium power research reactor: MERLIN 5MW (commissioned 1959), designed and built as a research tool for industry, government bodies and the universities. I sold to Germany, I to AWRE.'
Material relating to particle accelerators and thermonuclear research is to be found at CSAC 72.2.80/B.2 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.9 and CSAC 72.2.80/B.10 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.40 respectively. There are also several folders of work on superconductivity (B.41 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.51) and some more miscellaneous material (B.52 - CSAC 72.2.80/B.69), but nothing remains of Chick's work on the Merlin Research Reactor apart from his published papers and a few press-cuttings describing the opening of the Reactor in November 1959 (see CSAC 72.2.80/B.39).
The surviving papers from the Vickers Research Laboratory are a rather heterogeneous collection and cannot be considered fully representative of Chick's activities during that period.

The University of Surrey, formerly Battersea College of Advanced Technology, received its charter in 1966. Chick was appointed Head of the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering in 1965 and proceded to build up research activities in the department in preparation for the move to a much larger site at Guildford during 1968-70. His early efforts to establish Surrey as a centre of research in ion implantation are well documented in CSAC 72.2.80/D.27 - CSAC 72.2.80/D.41; he also established a Lasers and Telecommunications Group, encouraged the already existing Control and Computers Group, and formed an Industrial Electronics Group to make the expertise of his academic staff available to industry on a contract research basis.
Chick's other main aim was to promote a close liaison between industry and the University, and many of the lectures, etc. in CSAC 72.2.80/D.1 - CSAC 72.2.80/D.11 reflect this, as well as his attempts to collaborate with industry in research. The 'Working Party on Continuing Development and Education for Engineers' (see CSAC 72.2.80/D.12 - CSAC 72.2.80/D.26) was also an attempt to cement close relations with industry by involving the University in the task of keeping engineers in touch with new technological developments.
Initially Chick's administrative work left him very little time for personal research, but some notes remain from his last two years at Surrey (see CSAC 72.2.80/D.43) when he was working on various aspects of ion implantation.

'Working Party on Continuing Development and Education for Engineers'.  CSAC 72.2.80/D.12 - D.26  [n.d.]

Contents:
The Working Party, consisting of members of the University of Surrey and representatives of various industrial firms, was set up as the result of a select conference on 'Further Training of Technologists' held at Surrey on 3 July 1969 (see CSAC 72.2.80/D.16 - CSAC 72.2.80/D.19). Its purpose was to discuss proposals by Surrey to offer a series of courses designed to keep older engineers in touch with the latest technological developments in order to prevent stagnation in industry caused by resistance to new ideas by an out-of-date management. Industry was unable to guarantee support for Surrey's proposals and the project was eventually shelved in January 1971.
The first part of the section covers the development of ideas through correspondence and preliminary meetings, culminating in the organisation of the select conference. For ease of reference, names of manufacturing and industrial firms approached by Chick in relation to this project are included in the Index of Correspondents.

Contents:
Chick first became interested in ion implantation at A.E.I. Aldermaston, but he was unable to persuade the company to support work in this field. On his appointment to the University of Surrey he decided to take it up again, and his struggle to establish Surrey as a centre for research in ion implantation is well documented in this section, which contains correspondence, notes of meetings, applications for research grants, etc., 1965-69.
In February 1970 Surrey was nominated by the Science Research Council as one of the three U.K. Universities to be given special recognition and support for research in the field of ion implantation. The author of The Times obituary of Chick (see CSAC 72.2.80/A.1) writes: 'Professor Chick's originality and creativity is best evidenced by the fact that in 1966 he initiated research work on ion implantation well before industry recognized its importance in microelectronics. Today, the department is one of the internationally recognized centres of excellence in this area'.
