Thank you for making us #1! The University of Michigan Aerospace Engineering department is proud to announce that we have been named the top Aerospace Engineering graduate program for Fall 2015 according to GraduatePrograms.com.

The ranking is based on program reviews from current or recent graduate students in categories like academic competitiveness, career support, and financial aid. With this #1 ranking, the University of Michigan topped both Stanford and MIT and earned the top spot for the second time in a row. (The department was also ranked #1 for Spring 2015.)

To our students, alumni, faculty, and staff, thank you for the support, and Go Blue!

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
