Lauren Steimle, a PhD student in Industrial and Operations Engineering, has been elected the student chapter representative on the Subdivisions Council of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) Society.

The purpose of the Subdivisions Council is to oversee the subdivisions of INFORMS and to provide a line of communication between the subdivisions and the INFORMS Board of Directors. The Student Chapter Representative to the Subdivision Council serves to influence INFORMS policy on behalf on the student chapters and student members. The presidents of the student chapters elect the Student Chapter Representative to a two-year term.

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
