New ways to give to CEE

The CEE Giving page was recently updated to include more ways to give, so visitors can choose the funds that matter most to them.| Short Read

You can visit the page by clicking here.

Funds have been separated into three groups: Fellowships & ScholarshipsSpecialty Areas and Department. The Specialty Areas funds allow visitors to give to a certain research area. Your help today will make a difference in the world tomorrow, and will help CEE maintain the high standard of excellence that exemplifies the CEE programs at Michigan.

CEE especially encourages giving on Giving Blueday, the University’s first-ever university-wide day of giving. It coincides with Giving Tuesday (December 2, 2014), a global day of giving on the Tuesday following the Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a day for everyone who loves Michigan to join together to support students, transform lives, shape the world and make great things happen.

On this special day, you can be a victor by making a donation to the area of your choice. Gifts of every size will make a difference! Plus, on Giving Tuesday, your gift could go even further by attracting additional funds through matching gifts and challenges!

Together, we can turn Giving Tuesday into Giving Blueday!

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
