Alexander (BSE Mech ’50) and Evelyn McKeen have recently endowed the Alexander and Evelyn McKeen Scholarship Fund to provided financial assistance for undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Mr. McKeen held numerous leadership positions with the Cadillac Motor Car Division and General Motors engineering staff. He founded an engineering consulting business, Engineering Analysis Associates, upon leaving General Motors. After substantial growth, his company was sold to a New York Stock Exchange listed firm. He subsequently worked with numerous nonprofit organizations to assist them in strategic planning and board development. He and his wife, Mrs. Evelyn McKeen, reside in West Bloomfield, MI and Bonita Springs, FL.

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
