Professor Lee awarded for scholarship in construction

Assistant Professor SangHyun Lee has been selected for the Daniel W. Halpin Award for Scholarship in Construction from ASCE.| Short Read

This award recognizes those who have demonstrated outstanding scholarship that advances construction engineering as a science.

Lee is invited to accept his award at the Construction Research Congress in Atlanta, GA, this May.

The award citation reads “for demonstrating outstanding scholarship in construction engineering and management through groundbreaking research in computer simulation and information technology, and its application to the construction industry.” More information can be found from ASCE Press Release: http://blogs.asce.org/lee-to-be-honored-with-asces-daniel-w-halpin-award-for-scholarship-in-construction/

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
