Dr. Pittman was previously an experimental physicist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
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:
Quantum computing with single photon qubits: Linear Optics Quantum Computing (LOQC), photonic quantum logic gates, quantum communication systems, and other topics in quantum information processing.
Quantum Entanglement: Parametric Down-Conversion (PDC) sources, entangled photon pairs, “entangled photon holes” (EPH’s), macroscopic phase-entangled coherent states, and other non-classical states for quantum information processing.
Ultralow-power nonlinear optics: Nanowatt and “few-photon” level nonlinearities using sub-wavelength diameter tapered optical nanofibers (ONF’s) suspended in atomic alkali vapors (Rubidium) and noble gases (metastable Xenon), and high-finesse optical cavities filled with noble gases (metastable Xenon).
