In celebration of 25 years of ARL, meet members of the laboratory's staff who have contributed to its success in Army science and technology! From scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technicians to postdoctoral research fellows and support staff members, read about their contributions and what makes them unique members of the ARL family.
The Harry Diamond Laboratories, another predecessor organization to ARL, developed methods and devices in the mid-fifties to early sixties to lay down circuits, first on boards and later on silicon "chips" using photographic methods. This work, which was originally performed as a means to build gun-rugged electronics for artillery fuzes, was the genesis of both our printed circuit boards and our microelectronic devices/integrated circuits industries. HDL held many of the original patents in this area including three seminal patents on the masking processes and the step-and-repeat camera by which such devices are manufactured.
