Feeleys expand family scholarship

The scholarship provides need-based support to out-of-state undergraduate Engineering students, focusing on underserved students.| Short Read

Edmund J. (BSE NAME ’82) and Maryellen Feeley have contributed an additional $200,000 to the already established Feeley Family Endowed Scholarship Fund. The gift will receive a $50,000 match from the University’s Michigan Matching Initiative for Student Support. The scholarship provides need-based support to out-of-state undergraduate Engineering students, focusing on underserved students.

Mr. Feeley is managing director of Littlejohn & Co., LLC, a private-equity firm. The Feeleys reside in Greenwich, Connecticut.

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
