Chung-Chan Hung (Prof. El-Tawil advisor) received the prestigious ‘Studying Abroad Award’ sponsored by the Taiwanese Ministry of Education. He placed second among 105 nominees in the Engineering category and will receive a $32,000 award. Entrants are judged based on several categories including research productivity and quality as well as extracurricular activities and leadership skills.

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
