Albi’s fund carries forward ME scholarships

This gift will provide undergraduate scholarships or graduate fellowships with the potential of supporting both. Awards will be based on financial need and academic merit.| Short Read

Maxime (BSE ME ’78, MSE ’80) and Maureen Albi have documented a bequest to establish the Maxime and Maureen Albi Endowed Fund to assist students enrolled in the College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. More specifically, this gift will provide undergraduate scholarships or graduate fellowships with the potential of supporting both. Awards will be based on financial need and academic merit.

As an international scholarship recipient himself, Mr. Albi treasures the education he received from the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is excited to support students who are willing to work hard and take advantage of what Michigan Engineering has to offer. Mr. Albi hopes that the recipients of his fund will one day pay it forward and provide financial assistance to future students.

With 25+ years’ experience in engineering, sales, and business development, Mr. Albi currently leads business development and strategic alliances at a high tech firm based in Silicon Valley.

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
