Professor Daigger named top leader in water and wastewater

Water and Wastewater International (WWi) recently named Professor Glen Daigger as the number one leader out of the top 25 leaders in the water and wastewater industries.| Short Read

“Votes have been counted and the final results are in,” the WWi website states. “The winner of this year’s WWi Top 25 Leaders Listing is the immediate past president of the IWA (International Water Association) and former chief technology officer at CH2M, Glen Daigger. With four decades of experience in the global sector, he has witnessed a shift in how water is treated and respected.”

The WWi top leaders article includes an interview with Daigger. To read the interview, and to learn about the other top leaders, please visit

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
