EECS Fellowship Fund receives planned gift from Bauhahns

This instrument will be used to endow the Paul E. and Ruth E. Bauhahn Fellowship Fund to provide support to full-time graduate students studying electrical and computer engineering.| Short Read

Paul E. (MS EE ’69, MS Physics ’72, PhD EE ’77) and Ruth E. (MA ’74) Bauhahn of Fridley, Minnesota, have made a planned gift of $450,000 to establish the Ruth E. Bauhahn and Paul E. Bauhahn Charitable Remainder Unitrust. This instrument will be used to endow the Paul E. and Ruth E. Bauhahn Fellowship Fund to provide support to full-time graduate students studying electrical and computer engineering. Ruth retired from Medtronic. Paul retired from Honeywell.

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
