Professor Love successfully nominated to IWA Fellows

Professor Nancy Love has been successfully nominated to the 2014 IWA (International Water Association) Fellows.| Short Read

IWA is an organization that brings together people from across the water profession to deliver equitable and sustainable water solutions for the world. The fellows program recognizes those members who have made a distinguished contribution to the field of water science, technology and management.

Love will be formally recognized in September 2014 as an IWA Fellow during the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition in Lisbon, Portugal.

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
