William A. (BSE IO ’91) and Nicole A. Gryzenia (AB ’93) have provided a gift to benefit the College of Engineering and the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. At the College of Engineering, this gift of endowment has established the Bill and Nicole Family Scholarship Fund in order to provide scholarship support to undergraduate students. This gift qualifies for the Third Century Matching Initiative.

Mr. Gryzenia currently serves as the CEO of AxleTech International, a global manufacturer of heavy-duty off-highway drivetrain systems, components and aftermarket parts. Prior to his current role, Mr. Gryzenia has held other executive positions, including Vice President & General Manger, Aftermarket to the Dana Corporation and Vice President, Aftermarket to AxleTech International. After her undergraduate studies at the U-M, Mrs. Gryzenia earned a juris doctor degree from George Washington University in 1997, and currently practices immigration law.

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
