The U. S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the Army's premier laboratory for land forces. The Army relies on ARL for scientific discoveries, technological advances, and analyses that enable capabilities a future Army will need to persevere over adversaries. Although a relatively young organization that will celebrate 25 years of the discovery, innovation, and transition of science and technology in October 2017, ARL has already had significant impact in a wide range of scientific and technological disciplines. In this paper, we highlight some of its past and recent achievements in optics and photonics.
