The University of Michigan Alumni and Friends mixer at the 2011 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) reunited faculty, students, colleagues and friends at this annual event. It is held the Tuesday evening of ISSCC in the conference hotel.

“It was really great to see everyone,” said Prof. Michael Flynn, the organizing host of the event. “This is our third event at ISSCC, and we all feel it’s a great opportunity to connect with people in a relaxing environment.”

The faculty hosts were:

David Blaauw Mina Rais-Zadeh
Michael Flynn Dennis Sylvester
Yogesh Gianchandani David Wentzloff
Trevor Mudge Ken Wise
Khalil Najafi Euisik Yoon
Marios Papaefthymiou Zhengya Zhang

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
