Celebrating 75 Years of ElectroScience Laboratory Innovations


Celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2017, the ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) at The Ohio State University has built a renowned international reputation for historic achievements in science.

ESL is a major center-of-excellence in Ohio State’s College of Engineering and is one of the largest radio frequency and optics research laboratories in the world. Not satisfied with resting on past accomplishments, ESL remains committed to finding next-generation solutions to current engineering obstacles.

Over the next few months, leading up to the official 75th Anniversary celebration event at ESL on Oct. 6, we are highlighting researchers making waves in new scientific realms, each striving to advance human knowledge for a better tomorrow. Distinguished ECE alumnus Eric Evans, Director of the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, will help commemorate the occasion as speaker.

We will delve into the remote sensing work of ESL Senior Researcher Associate Alexandra Bringer, as she helps to advance climate science studies worldwide, and the discoveries of Assistant Professor Nima Ghalichechian who is exploring advancements in nanotechnology. We will also report on Research Scientist Chris Ball’s work to find engineering solutions in space collaborations with NASA.
