and hardware design. Tim Stelzer and Mats Selen combine 35 years of academic experience as physics professors at
the University of Illinois, and lead product development. Michel Herquet is founder of Novapta’s technical partner,
B12 Consulting, and leads the Novapta back-end software group. With a Ph.D. in Physics Education Research and
