Mark W. Gealy


With the goal of becoming an astrophysicist, I earned my Bachelor's degree in physics at a small Presbyterian College (I am after all, a small Presbyterian, descended from authentic Scottish Presbyterians). I later changed course in research to do experimental studies of collisions of electrons, ions, and atoms with atoms and molecules. I became specialized in the particularly tricky business of preparing atomic hydrogen and oxygen targets for laboratory collision experiments. In 1990, I came to Concordia College to teach physics and astronomy. 

Recently I have begun working in the new (to me) area of laser chemistry.  My last sabbatical was spent carrying out spectroscopic studies of laser light with binary liquid mixtures. For more, visit the Physical Chemistry Research Group page.
