Patel provides additional CE scholarship

Mavjibhai L. Patel (BSE CE ’63) of Flushing, New York, has made a $50,000 endowment gift to establish the Lilavati and Taraben and Mavjibhai Patel Scholarship Fund to provide need-based scholarship support to full-time, civil engineering undergraduates. The donor’s preference is that students from India will receive funds in the financial packages they are otherwise awarded.

Mr. Patel also started another $50,000 scholarship back in 2012 to honor his parents. He established the Deviben and Lalbhai Patel Endowed Scholarship Fund that provides need-based scholarship support to full-time undergraduate students at the College of Engineering.

Mr. Patel says that the University of Michigan is where he got the best education and training that helped him, as a first generation Indian American, succeed. He says, “Michigan has given me my identity. Hail to 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
