Greg A. Pitz

Dr. Pitz received his B.A. and M.S. degree in Physics from Wright State University, Dayton, OH, in 2001 and 2004, respectively. In 2010 he received his PhD from the Air Force Institute of Technology, where his primary work was to perform research to aid the development of electric hybrid lasers. His Master’s Thesis was to aid in the understanding of pure oxygen discharges and their usefulness for Electrically pumped Oxygen Iodine Lasers (EOIL). His dissertation contributed to the understanding of the cesium line-shape and collisional kinetics associated with diode pumped alkali lasers (DPAL). Since then, he has been working as an Associate Research Physicist at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, NM. He has authored or coauthored over 15 scientific articles. His current research interests include optically pumped alkali lasers, hollow core fiber lasers, and atomic and molecular spectroscopy. Dr. Pitz is a member of the Directed Energy Professional Society.
