About the Lab

The Antennas and Electromagnetics Lab (AEL) was established at NC State in 2013.  The driving mission of the lab is to develop dynamic RF apertures that sense and adapt to their electromagnetic environment and are structurally integrated with a variety of platforms, and to develop fundamental, quantitative methods to understand the physical capabilities and limitations of next generation antennas.
