Episode 1


Episode 1 – Dr. Frank Narducci – Quantum Physics and the Navy 
Dr. Frank Narducci discusses family, having a physicist for a father, and his personal passion of incorporating quantum physics into Navy practices. This episode was recorded on 08 May 2020.  








Dr. Narducci began his career by earning his Ph.D. in 1996 from the University of Rochester’s Dept of Physics, under the guidance of the late Prof. Leonard Mandel, studying photon correlations in single and multi-atom systems. Upon completion of his degree, he joined the Naval Air Systems Command as a staff physicist. Over the next 20 years, he rose through the ranks to eventually become the Senior Science and Technology Manager (SSTM) for Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT). He won the Dolores Etter Award for Top Navy Scientist in 2013 and was also elected a NavAir Fellow in 2014. He joined the faculty at the Naval Postgraduate School as an Associate Professor of Physics in 2017. He currently maintains a group that experimentally studies and develops quantum sensors.  In addition to his duties at NPS, he consults for the American Physical Society as an editor for the journals Physical Review Letters, Physical Review A and Physical Review Research (3 of the leading journals in the fields of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics.)
