CEE introduces Environmental Engineering Degree

A BSE degree in Environmental Engineering is available through Civil and Environmental Engineering Department | Short Read

The Civil Engineering department is proud to announce the implementation of a BSE degree in Environmental Engineering, which will focus on sustainability and green technology. The degree program which has been in development for a year and a half is pending approval by the Presidents Council State Universities of Michigan and by the University’s Board of Regents. For more information, see the Michigan Daily article.

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
