Archive: Progress Report

The annual Progress Report of the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) presents major research accomplishments of RLE’s faculty, students, and staff. It is submitted to sponsors and distributed widely outside RLE in electronic media and print. Through their principal investigators, each RLE group, laboratory, or center submits a report on research projects that were active during the prior MIT academic year. These reports summarize research progress and results, and list personnel, sponsors, and publications.

The annual Progress Report ceased publication with the 2009–2010 issue no. 152
