U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) Senior Allyse Locker was awarded 2nd place in the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) Detroit Chapter Irv Otis Scholarship.

The scholarship candidate must show that he/she is dedicated to the Industrial Engineering profession and IIE. Being involved in programs with their school and promoting the discipline of IE are excellent examples. Being involved in the leadership of their local IIE chapter is also an excellent demonstration of what is required of a successful candidate.

Please join the department in congratulating her on this award!

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
