UM team takes first place in CHOM POMS competition

A U-M team wrote a winning paper in the College of Healthcare Operations Management of the Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) 2016 Best Paper Competition.| Short Read

Pooyan Kazemian, Jonathan Helm, Mariel Lavieri, Joshua Stein, and Mark Van Oyen wrote a first place winning paper in the College of Healthcare Operations Management of the Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) 2016 Best Paper Competition. Part of Pooyan’s dissertation, the winning paper is titled “Dynamic Personalized Monitoring and Treatment Control of Glaucoma.” Pooyan presented the paper in a special session during the POMS 27th Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL.

Please join us in congratulating Pooyan and the team.

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
