CEE Faculty Search

The University of Michigan’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), is looking for two faculty candidates.| Short Read

One position targets Structural Engineering candidates who focus on the design of high-performance and sustainable infrastructure systems. The other position targets candidates in the area of Construction Engineering and Management of the built environment, with an emphasis on bridging with other disciplines.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
