Giving Blueday is coming up on December 1

This December, U-M is once again turning Giving Tuesday—the national movement to kick off the giving season—into Giving Blueday.| Short Read

On this special day, from midnight through 11:59 p.m. EST, you can be a victor for Michigan by making a donation to any area of your choice at the university. Gifts of every size will make a difference, and your gift could go even further by attracting additional funds through matching gifts and challenges you can participate in throughout the day.

You can help transform lives, shape the world, and make great things happen.

Please visit the CEE giving page to learn how you can make a difference for CEE.

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
