1995- Consultant & Air Force Researach Laboratory Emeritus
1967-95 Chief, Rome Laboratory - Components Technology Branch
Planned and managed in-house (12 people) and contractual ($2 M) research & development program with universities and industry. Researched 80-psec-laser activated antennas, high-Tc superconductivity, GaAs & InP Monolithic Circuits to a record of 213GHz, surface acoustic waves (SAW), & microwave ultrasonics. Components are used in DOD communications and radar systems as well as TV and cellular phones.
Supervised graduate students, three of whom won the prestigious
Air Force R&D Award.
One used his research on Surface Acoustic Waves (SAW) as a Ph.D. thesis at the U. of MO.
In 1976, the former AF Cambridge Research Laboratory became part of the Rome Laboratory.
