Predicts up to ninety percent accuracy how a given company will be exploited

Millions of consumers are affected by cybercrime each year, and for a variety of reasons companies have not been able to stay ahead of cyber criminals. Enter Quadmetrics, a company developed by Michigan engineers that predicts with up to ninety percent accuracy how a given company will be exploited by cyber criminals. Quadmetrics’ advanced algorithms essentially helps corporations navigate the labyrinthine market for data security solutions in order to pick the one best suited to help them.

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
