Arthur M. Sackler Sciences Center
Clark’s physics research lives in the Arthur M. Sackler Sciences Center, along with the math and computer science department. Our well-equipped teaching laboratories are dedicated to computer simulations, electronics, optics, atomic and nuclear physics, and materials science. Our condensed matter physics research laboratories are equipped with the following:
- A variable-temperature scanning tunneling microscope (STM)
- A room temperature STM/atomic force microscope (AFM)
- An x-ray computed tomography (CT) system
- Two scanning electron microscopes (SEMs)
- A SQUID magnetometer
- A low-temperature pulsed magnetic field system
In addition, the research labs also have powerful computers used to control experiments and collect and analyze data. The RISC workstations provide links to supercomputers at other institutions. Students also have access to our electronics and machine shops.
Along with the resources of the Robert H. Goddard Library, the 5,000-square-foot Carlson Science Library and dedicated science librarian provides one-on-one research assistance and access to numerous databases, scholarly articles and journals, books, and other resources.
