Dr. Robert Clark, Assistant Professor of Physics
Excellence in Teaching and Scholarship

Dr. Robert Clark has developed a number of ways to generate enthusiasm for science across a wide range of student interests. To illustrate principles of waves, Clark provides demonstrations with musical instruments in his physics classes. Recently, Clark’s students successfully constructed a coil-gun, a timed music box, an audio amplifier, an automatic temperature control circuit, and a laser diode driver. Clark regularly opens his research laboratory for visitors and offers undergraduate research opportunities. Clark has published a sole-author paper describing a new form of ion trap in Applied Physics B. He has presented his work across the country, including at the American Physical Society meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, and at the International Conference on Laser Spectroscopy in Berkeley, California. He has also applied for multiple external grants, and was recently granted the competitive Cottrell College Science Award from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement for the first time in Citadel history. Apart from his work at The Citadel, Clark is also a visiting research professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he conducts cutting-edge research on ion traps.
