FUTURISTIC MOTIF characterizes this rear view of a part of the revolutionary metal lens which can focus radio waves much as an optical lens focusses light.

The lens, developed at Bell Telephone Laboratories, is expected to find its most immediate use in microwave radio relay systems such as New York to Boston channel now under construction.

It also holds promise of many other important applications.
