    Department of Energy Supports Research on Microplasmas

    A new grant from the Department of Energy is enabling Dr. Stephen Remillard of the Hope College physics faculty to explore how microplasmas function — understanding that is meant to improve their value in applications ranging from the design of small radio components, to plasma display panels, to surgery.

  3. APS Helps Form the Inclusive Graduate Education Network

    Dr. Cathy Mader, professor of physics, is helping to lead an effort by the Inclusive Graduate Education Network — a network of five scientific societies funded with a five-year $10M grant from the National Science Foundation — to increase participation of underrepresented students in graduate physical science programs.
