NAME Doctoral student, Jifa Mei, receives SAE Henry O. Fuchs student award

Ph.D. student, Jifa Mei, has been awarded the SAE Henry O. Fuchs Student Award| Short Read

Congrats to Ph.D. student, Jifa Mei, on being awarded the SAE Henry O. Fuchs Student Award for his novel modeling method for quantifying multiaxial fatigue damage under non-proportional multiaxial loading conditions, as documented in his three publications in International Journal of Fatigue.

The purpose of this award is to promote the education of engineering students in the area of fatigue technology and this award is facilitated by the Fatigue Design Evaluation Committee. Jifa has been invited to the SAE FD&E 2017 Spring Meeting at the John Deere Headquarters in Noline, IL to present his thesis and receive his award.

219 NAME

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
