Charitable IRA rollover for 2014 now available

If you are 70½ or older and own a traditional IRA, consider making an IRA charitable rollover gift this year.| Short Read

If you are 70½ or older and own a traditional IRA, consider making an IRA charitable rollover gift this year. A gift of up to $100,000 made from your IRA to the University of Michigan will:

  • not be included in your taxable income.
  • satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
  • reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
  • not be subject to charitable gift limitations.
  • provide meaningful support for the University of Michigan.

This gift opportunity ends on December 31, 2014.

Contact the Office of Gift Planning or your IRA plan administrator to make a qualified gift from your IRA to the University of Michigan.

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
