A pioneer in the field of laser science, Dr. Tittel led the field in the use of lasers in the spectroscopic detection of molecules and bio-molecules. He served Rice as the ECE department chair from 1992-1995 and as chair of the Rice Quantum Institute from 1996-2000 (now the Smalley-Curl Institute).

“Dr. Tittel taught me the most about work ethic and efficiency. He taught by example. I still remember seeing his large van parked, with front wheels tilted, in front of the Space Sciences Building nearly every weekend. He taught me how to get work done.”
