Title Professor Education Ph.D. Physics – UMBC, 1996 Previous Experience Dr. Pittman was previously an experimental physicist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Professional Interests My primary interests are in the areas of quantum information, quantum optics, nonlinear optics, and foundations of quantum mechanics. My current research efforts involve experimental work on:
