AMHERST, Mass. – David S. Hall, associate professor of physics at Amherst College, has received a three-year, $469,086 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award will support Hall’s studies of gases cooled to a billionth of a degree above absolute zero—the lowest possible temperature in the universe—and will allow him to build on work done by legendary physicists Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein in the 1920s.
