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. RLE on the World Wide Web, RLE has a presence on the World Wide Web (http://rleweb.mit.edu). The RLE web site features the full text of recent RLE publications, including this Progress Report, RLE currents, and RLE undercurrents. The site also includes an introduction to RLE research and services; information about RLE's history, research groups, and staff; news of RLE events; a history of the Radiation Laboratory (1940-1945); and Building 20 reminiscences and photographs. RLE Progress Report, RLE Progress Report Number 140 describes research programs at RLE for the period January 1 through December 31, 1997.
