The Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) was established in 1946 as the Institute's first interdepartmental laboratory. Originally organized under the joint sponsorship of the Departments of Physics and Electrical Engineering, RLE has broadened its interests to cover a wide range of research. The RLE environment provides both the freedom of action essential in an academic institution and the availability of large-scale laboratory facilities and services required by researchers. RLE's interdisciplinary setting offers many opportunities for creative and collaborative research. By fostering this powerful combination of research and education, RLE effectively penetrates beyond the horizon of new ideas and information. Progress Report No. 130 describes research programs at RLE for the period January 1 through December 31, 1987. This report contains both a statement of research objectives and a summary of research efforts for each of the research groups within RLE. Faculty, research staff and students who participated in these projects are identified at the beginning of each chapter, along with sources of funding. We would like to highlight the following features of this report. Chapter 30 is a bibliography of RLE publications and papers presented by RLE staff during 1987. Chapter 31 is a roster of current RLE staff. In addition, indexes of project personnel and sponsored research projects are located at the end of this report. Progress Report No. 130 was produced by the RLE Communications Office.
