HRL’s History of the Future Podcast Episode 003: Dan Sievenpiper

In our third episode of HRL’s History of the Future Podcast we speak with Dan Sievenpiper, a whiz-kid scientist who invented the high-impedance electromagnetic surface while he was an engineering grad student at UCLA. Dan spent 11 years at HRL Laboratories and became the youngest lab director ever at HRL.

Now a professor at UC San Diego, Dan’s research focuses on artificial media and the integration of active electronics with electromagnetic structures, and antennas to enable new capabilities and applications. Dan currently has more than 70 issued patents and more than 120 publications to his credit. We invited him to the History of the Future Podcast to talk about his career and give us some insight about his time at HRL Laboratories.
