Bethel Physics Professors Win National Science Foundation Grants

Bethel professors Nathan Lindquist, Keith Stein, and Chad Hoyt recently won prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) grants for proposals in chemical imaging, advanced physics education, and fiber laser frequency combs. For a school to earn three NSF grants over one time period is highly unusual, and speaks to the hard work, brilliance, and dedication of Bethel professors. The honor is also a reflection of the outstanding quality of our Department of Physics and Engineering Program.
