Lutgarde Raskin recipient of Water Environment Federation Fellow

Professor Lutgarde Raskin was selected as a recipient of the Water Environment Federation (WEF) Fellow Recognition Program.| Short Read

A total of 23 WEF members were approved by the Board to be honored during the second year. The Fellow Recognition Program recognizes professional accomplishments in the professional segments served by WEF, and reinforces WEF’s reputation as a valuable water quality resource, due in large part to the expertise of its diverse membership.

Some areas of recognition include design, education, operations, regulation, research, and utility management/leadership.

Please join us in congratulating Professor Raskin on this honor.

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
