Optics Research

I recently joined the Physics Department after working in industry in fiber optic sensors, optical transmission, and optical networks. Approximately one day per week, I will be engaged in research on fiber optical components and techniques at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C.
Here at USNA, I will begin a project with with mechanical construction, thermal control, electronic instrumentation, and optical transmission components to it. Midshipmen with interests in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Computer Science, and who would like to do experimental and modelling work in these areas, are encouraged to contact me.
