The Research Laboratory of Electronics, 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. RLE Progress Report, RLE Progress Report Number 136 describes research programs at RLE for the period January 1 through December 31, 1993. Each chapter of the Progress Report contains both a statement of research objectives and a summary of research efforts for research projects listed. Faculty, research staff, students and others who participated in these projects are identified at the beginning of each project, along with sources of funding. There are four appendices at the end of the report: Appendix A is a bibliography of RLE publications and papers presented by RLE staff during 1993; Appendix B is a roster of current RLE staff; Appendix C is a list of RLE faculty and staff milestones and honors received during 1993; and Appendix D is an index of RLE sponsors. In addition, the Project Staff and Subject Index provides access to the information in this report. In addition to the Progress Report, RLE also publishes RLE currents, a biannual newsletter which focuses on RLE research interests; a technical report series; Speech Group Working Papers; and other information related to the Laboratory. The RLE Brochure, published in 1991 for RLE's 45th anniversary, is also available.
