CEE alumnae Tarolyn Buckles (’93) and Jasmine Sisson (’99) are featured in a recent video from Michigan Engineering titled, “Being a Woman in Engineering.”

Both women share what it means to follow their engineering ambitions. Being in a field that is largely comprised of men, women can face challenges along the way to becoming a professional engineer. Watch the video to hear what inspired them to pursue their career path and what advice they have for the next generation of women in engineering.

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
