He worked with mass spectrometers at Los Alamos. He was part of the group that photographed the Operations Crossroads nuclear tests in the Bikini Atoll after the war. 

After the Manhattan Project ended, Bartlett earned his Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University and became a professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he was a prominent member of the faculty.
