Professor Philip L. Roe is the 2015 Fluid Dynamics Award recipient for his for outstanding contributions to the understanding of the behavior of liquids and gases in motion as related to need in aeronautics and astronautics. Roe received his award in the technical excellence category for seminal contributions to the design of numerical algorithms for simulations of compressible flows.

Roe has been a professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan since 1994, specializing in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics, and Electromagnetics. Roe recently covered the history of CFD from the earliest beginnings to the present day in a lecture titled, Colorful Fluid Dynamics. Read more about Prof. Roe.

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
