Karen Ann (Bagley) Albrecht (BSE Aero ’72) has made a $30,000 gift to endow The Isaac, Vera, Gayle, Karen and Carol Bagley Endowed Aerospace Engineering Undergraduate Fund, and to establish The Isaac, Vera, Gayle, Karen and Carol Bagley Expendable Aerospace Engineering Undergraduate Fund.

The Endowed Fund will support priorities and needs of U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are Aero students. Initially, the Expendable Fund will support scholarships for those students.

Recently retired from an illustrious 35+-year career as an aerospace engineer, Karen is a Certified Life/Career Coach and an entrepreneur. She resides in Acworth, Georgia.

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
