Advanced Concepts Laboratory (ACL)

ACL focuses on the transition of basic academic research in electromagnetic effects and devices into prototype systems that demonstrate new capabilities. The capabilities of interest are typically sensing, scattering control, electromagnetic field control and measurement, and signal filtering, all of which support GTRI’s core system-level capabilities. In support of this work the laboratory develops and maintains world-class modeling and measurement capabilities for electromagnetic phenomena, from quasi-static to UV wavelengths. ACL is a leader in precise radio frequency (RF) and electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) measurements in addition to technology development.
