Wallace Hopp appointed Distinguished University Professor

IOE Professor Wallace Hopp has received one of the University of Michigan's top honors as a Distinguished University Professor.| Short Read

The appointment was approved by the Board of Regents on May 18 and is effective Sept. 1, 2016.

Recently appointed DUPs are invited to give an inaugural lecture that highlights their work at the university. The lecture is typically delivered during the first or second full year of their appointments.

Please join us in congratulating Wallace, the C.K. Prahalad Distinguished University Professor of Business and Engineering. He also is associate dean for learning and design, and professor of technology and operations, Stephen M. Ross School of Business; and professor of industrial and operations engineering, CoE.

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
