The ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is a premier university center in the College of Engineering devoted to world-class electromagnetic scattering, antennas, propagation, remote sensing, wireless, signal processing, sensor fusion, THz, and photonics research areas.​

Established in 1941, ESL is one of the oldest and largest Radio Frequency (RF) /Optics laboratories in the United States. The center is comprised of 15 faculty, 12 researchers, 10 administrative staff, 77 graduate students, and 13 undergraduate students.
