Professor Clack earns three distinctions at ICESP conference

At the triennial International Conference on Electrostatic Precipitation in Bangalore, India, Professor Herek Clack earned three notable distinctions.| Short Read

First, he was elected to the International Society for Electrostatic Precipitation (ISESP) Board of Directors.

Second, he was awarded best paper for his paper entitled, “Computational Modeling of Electrohydrodynamically-Influenced Mercury Adsorption within ESPs.”

Last but not least, he received the Harry J. White Award, which is “conferred on a young scientist or engineer who has made notable contribution as a researcher or teacher in the field of electrostatic precipitation technology,” according to the ISESP award website.

Please join CEE in congratulating Professor Clack on this outstanding achievement.

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
