IOE alum creates Edwardson Family Scholarship

This endowment gift will provide need-based support to full-time CoE undergraduates.| Short Read

Scott D. Edwardson (BSE IOE ’92) has given $25,000 to the College to create the Edwardson Family Scholarship. This endowment gift will provide need-based support to full-time CoE undergraduates. Preference will be given to students whose residency is in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Scott is a Managing Director at Edgewood Management Company in New York City.

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
