The LASER (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation), was developed in 1960 and still stands as one of the major breakthroughs of the 20th Century. In this video, meet some of the engineers and scientists supported by AFOSR who continue to push the boundaries of scientific discovery.

Shaping Computer Science

Since its creation in 1951, AFOSR has funded top-level research around the world. Today’s AFOSR funded computer science research takes form in many different programs at public and private research facilities. In this video, meet researchers performing this cutting-edge work.

Focus on the Future

This video focuses on AFOSR’s investment in six basic research areas that have the potential to create foundations for new disruptive technologies and solve formerly unsolvable problems for the Department of Defense. Produced for the 100th Anniversary of Air Force Basic Research, it highlights world-class researchers who tackle these difficult topics.
