Dale Smith

Assistant Professor of Physics
Science and Mathematics Center, Room 133

BS, Bridgewater State University
MS, PhD, University of Connecticut

Dr. Dale Smith is an Atomic Molecular and Optical (AMO) physicist. He received his PhD from the University of Connecticut (UCONN) in 2018 where his research involved using short-pulse high-intensity lasers to study molecules. His recent publications with Dr. George Gibson (UCONN) have shown that strong field dissociation of molecular iodine takes place from deeply bound inner electrons. This conflicts with current molecular theory which requires removal of the outermost (least bound) electron.

Dr. Smith graduated with a BS in Physics and Mathematics from BSU in 2011. He has returned to teach introductory algebra-based physics classes as well as upper level physics classes which he took as a BSU physics student.
