New CEE fund honors company CEO

Engineering firm Wade Trim established the Frank M. Tymowski Endowed Scholarship Fund for Civil & Environmental Engineering undergrads.| Short Read

Wade Trim, a multi-disciplinary engineering and planning consulting firm based in Detroit, has established the Frank M. Tymowski Endowed Scholarship Fund.

Frank Tymowski, a 1976 bachelor’s and master’s civil engineering graduate of the College of Engineering, has enjoyed a career that has spanned four decades with Wade Trim. Recently, he transitioned into a consulting role with the company after serving as its CEO for many years.

The Fund will provide need-based support to undergraduate students in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

This gift qualifies for a match from the University’s Michigan Matching Initiative for Student Support.

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
